The Adams County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday gave consideration to but tabled a decision on giving seed money to help with building improvements to the new Maryland Living Center.
For more than a year, Court Appointed Special Advocates and the Hastings Housing Development Corp. have been working together to restore the old Maryland Building to serve as a home for homeless youth transitioning into adulthood.
Ruann Root, CASA executive director, asked the board Tuesday to consider giving $10,000 to the project to help with construction and improvements to the building, which used to be residences of Mary Lanning HealthCare nurses. When construction is completed, the building will serve as a home for up to 33 youths ages 16-21 starting in August.
The board said it would take the request into consideration when it hears budget requests starting in June.
