SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A $5.6 million expansion project is under way at The Children's Home Society.
Executive Director Bill Colson says with the current facility, some therapists are having to serve the needs of parents and families in closet space.
The 117-year-old nonprofit's project includes a $2.3 million renovation of the education facility and a $3.3 million renovation of the school's residential complex.
About 6,000 square feet of new space will be added, and some 94,000 square feet is being remodeled.
Colson says more than 90 children use Children's Home Society services each day.
Sixty-two children are in residential treatment, and about 30 day students receive schooling and then go home to be with their families at night.
