(PORT ANGELES) The “Captain Joseph House” project has received an infusion of funding from the Home Depot, aimed at completing lodging with a healing environment for military families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty. When completed, the “Captain Joseph House” will be the only program of its kind in the United States.
The project was started by Port Angeles resident, Betsy Reed Schultz, whose son, Joseph William Schultz, served in the U.S. Army as a green beret Captain, and tragically died in the line of duty while in Afghanistan in 2011.
The project involves a home that was built in 1910, and involves extensive remodeling that was to take place in three phases, starting in June of 2013.
The Home Depot Foundation awarded a $12,000-dollar grant towards the renovation of the historic Tudor-style Port Angeles bed and breakfast destined to become the “Captain Joseph House.” In addition to the funding, Home Depot volunteers will be assisting the project with carpentry and landscaping expertise and labor.
The Captain Joseph House runs a web site that provides project and donation information on the project, at: www.captainjosephhousefoundation.org.
