RAPID CITY, S.D. — A former Rapid City alderwoman has been hired to help create a wide-ranging services center for local people facing homelessness, substance abuse or mental health problems.
The Rapid City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2sqaWtE) that Charity Doyle left the council on Monday after a 6-year stint. She will lead the project proposed by the Rapid City Collective Impact group to build a campus where people in crisis can get help.
The Haven for Hope concept is based on successful efforts undertaken in San Antonio, Texas, and features a campus-like setting where people can find a number of forms of assistance.
Doyle has an engineering degree and has worked in marketing and as the director of the Black Hills Soccer Foundation.
