Shannon first learned about Assisi House at Church of the Ascension when the discussion of using the land adjacent to the church first began. She was intrigued by the plan and felt it was a great way to serve a very important and often forgotten part of our community. She especially liked the plans to create a family like environment for a particular type of individual who did not need behavioral, psychological, or extensive medical support. Excited about the project and all the progress that has been made, Shannon looks forward to helping with the fund raising and helping to make this a reality for our community.
