John Ross, a resident of Holy Angels for 39 years, stands in the new greenhouse with CEO Laurie Boswell.
A Shreveport nonprofit that cares for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities has opened two new facets to its campus that will employ dozens of its 184 residents. Holy Angels dedicated its new horticulture center and gift shop yesterday in the name of two donors who made one-time gifts: AdvoCare, a nutrition supplement company, and the David Toms Foundation.
Adam Young, executive director of the David Toms Foundation, told the audience that many grant proposals cross his desk, but this one was business savvy.
A ceremony today will mark the completion of grant-funded renovations totaling $400,000 at Holy Angels, a residential facility in Shreveport housing 184 people with developmental disabilities. CEO Laurie Boswell says Holy Angels' 1960s-era buildings are in need of many repairs and upgrades. The ceremony is set for 2 p.m.
