(FEBRUARY 11, 2011) USDA RURAL DEVELOPMENT ASSISTS CAPSTONE WITH CHILD ADVOCACY CENTER

Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Feb 11, 2011 -- CAPstone of Scottsbluff, Neb. has received a $120,000 loan awarded by USDA Rural Development. The funds will be used to develop new space for a Child Advocacy Center for victimized children who have experienced abuse and neglect. CAPstone will contribute $24,500 towards this project.

The Child Advocacy Center will primarily be used during the investigatory process and for educational and support services related to child abuse and neglect.

“We are pleased to be receiving this funding to help in the remodeling of our building in Gering. We are anxious to get the work done and to get moved in,” said Director/Project Coordinator Joy McKay, CAPstone. “We want to thank everyone who has helped us during this process.”

“CAPstone provides an invaluable service to victimized children in Western Nebraska. The new location will be conveniently located near the county offices and the remodeled facility will improve the privacy afforded to each child. It’s rewarding to provide assistance to CAPstone for this project,” said Area Specialist Kathy Hruska, USDA Rural Development.

USDA funding for this project was provided through the Community Facility Direct Loan program. The loan is for 30 years at 3 3/4 percent interest.
