NORTH IDAHO--The Guardians Foundation says demand for its services is growing every day and now they need the public’s help.
   
The foundation’s headquarters is an old tortilla factory and serves 30 veterans and their families.  It’s operating on roughly a $50,000 annual budget, which includes what founder Mike Shaw gives out of his own pocket.

With growing demand for the foundation’s services, it’s working to move to a different facility.  Staff have set their sights on the old Stemson Lumber Facility.

Shaw says the foundation would move its operations there and bring in other like-minded organizations, such as the Freedom Riders or Wounded Warriors.

First, The Guardians Foundation has to get its new home up and running. 

They need the public’s help with funding the move.  Donations, large or small, can make a big difference for the growing organization and the homeless veterans it serves.
