A new transitional living program designed to help single parents has opened in Chico.
The Salvation Army hosted a dedication event Wednesday at the new center on Salem Street. The center was built by hundreds of Chico State student and other volunteers and will be available to help single parents who have completed the Salvation Army's adult rehabilitation program.
Salvation Army spokesperson Townya Stumpf said the center is critical in reuniting families and helping them maintain sobriety, and independence.
The Ann and Emmett Skinner Transitional Living Center cost an estimated $500,000, and was made possible through donations by the Skinner family and others.
