In 2011, the Sheridan Senior Center conducted a needs and assessment plan to help determine what areas need to be expanded on in the future. That assessment showed the need to increase the capacity of the day care and services offered to accommodate the growth in clients that use the facility.
The City Council this week approved a resolution supporting the submission of a grant application to the Wyoming Business Council for a Business Ready Community Grant to help fund a new day break adult care facility. Senior Center Director of Development Rindy West.
The total cost of the project is estimated at just over $900,000. The resolution approved by the City includes a match of the $400,000 that the Senior Center has from the land donation, reserve funds and private commitments.
The exact location of the day break facility hasn't been made available just yet, however, officials with the organization have stated that it would be relatively close to the main facility at 211 Smith Street.
