SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- The faith based nonprofit Shelter from the Storms Ministries, Inc. has obtained a new building for a family shelter.  The building is aimed at providing single moms and their children support, mentoring, and a place to live.

In December 2015, the organization procured 1325 Emerald Terrace and began the deconstruction process to prepare the building and green space for thirteen rooms, counseling space, a library and a playground.  They have also begin their Building Hope Campaign to help the organization raise funds to make it all possible.

On Tuesday, Kerri Kane stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to about the shelter and their upcoming fundraiser.

When the organization began in 2011, there were 70 homeless families registered in the Sun Prairie area school district. 

Later this month a Gala will be hosted for the shelter.  Gala for Shelter is a night to dress up, visit with friends, relax, and enjoy fabulous passed hors d’oeuvres.   There will be a cash bar and silent auction. 

Tickets are $50.00 per person and proceeds will benefit Shelter from the Storm Ministries.  Click here for ticket information.
