Meet Carla Howell!

For Team TIS Tuesday today, we’re traveling back in time to 2014! We were in search of a location for our first permanent shelter when the compassionate Carla Howell (who, along with her wonderful husband, Pete, had been longtime shelter supporters and volunteers) offered to sell us her beautiful bed and breakfast, called Easton’s Promise.

Carla and Pete were incredibly patient as we went through the permitting process, and would go on to lease the shelter to us for two years before we were able to purchase it from them. This photo was taken on the day that Carla handed over the keys to our home to Executive Director Julie Lowe and then-Board Chair Jack Harrald.

Thank you, Carla… We are forever grateful!
