The Healing House is a domestic violence shelter operated by Luna County.
Since March, volunteers and staff have been working to paint walls, trim and hardware while transforming bare soil into gardens.
Program director Irene Trejo said businesses and community members stepped forward to help them create an environment more conducive of healing.
She said they have created a caring environment that feels more like a home than a domestic violence shelter.
Trejo said their garden went from weeds to growing a variety of fruits and vegetables. And she said they have six different kinds of flowers and grass growing so the children of their clients can play outside.
Also, a survivor tree has been planted to honor the strength and resilience of families who stay at the shelter and to symbolize their ability to flourish after hard times.
Financial donors included Gamboa Landscaping, Foxworth-Galbraith Lumber Company, Sun Valley Do-It-Best Hardware and the Cell Phone Repair Shop, along with The Friends of the Healing House – a volunteer board with its mission to support the Healing House, and several individuals.
Aside from financial support, over 450 volunteer hours have been provided by 16 volunteers.
The shelter is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Services are available for men and women.
