Commissioners approve leasing home to local faith-based group
By Shelley Grieshop
CELINA - Mercer County officials on Tuesday agreed to lease a home on Mud Pike to a new, grassroots group seeking to provide a transitional facility for recovering addicts.
Bruce Swonger, a member of the Mercer County House of Hope ministry, said the organization will provide temporary "sober living housing" at the county-owned property beginning in August or September. Members of the group are partnering with the Mercer County Drug Court and other organizations, he added. [More]
