It’s been a busy week in the news for Eagle’s Healing Nest Anoka. The opening of Eagle’s Healing Nest in Anoka caught the attention of numerous news sources. We’ve been happy to share our story and see the outpouring of interest and support for a cause so near to us.
Hanna Covington of the Star Tribune wrote the article “Historic State Hospital building Anoka reopens as veterans housing.”
The article shares how this project is known as “miracle on 4th Street,” after volunteers pitched in to reach the goal of having veterans live at the site in less than two months. More than 350 volunteers transformed the old Anoka State Hospital into a welcoming home for veterans . The first veterans moved in December 1st. While the last couple months have been a whirlwind of activity, the opening of the home is perfect timing as winter weather is hitting Minnesota, and the holiday season is right around the corner.
Not only did Eagle’s Healing Nest Anoka end up in the newspaper, the organization was also featured in a news broadcast on KSTP-TV.
