Community Foundation Awards Grant to Sunshine House, Inc.

The Door County Community Foundation has awarded the Sunshine House, Inc. a sustainability grant from the Health and Human Needs Fund. This grant supports a system upgrade. This system upgrade will enable the Sunshine House staff and clients to stay well-informed and safe. As the outdated phone system can no longer be supported technically, the ability to communicate and deliver program services effectively is a top priority.

“This project will keep Sunshine House, Inc. staff and clients informed and safe by maintaining communication within and outside of the Sunshine House,” said Marcia Smith, Chair of the Door County Community Foundation. “We are pleased to support this imperative upgrade.
