Service League staff, supporters and clients gathered Dec. 3 to celebrate the dedication of "Mike's House," a newly acquired transitional house for men, in remembrance of the late county supervisor and former Service League executive director, Mike Nevin.
"Mike's House," located in Redwood City, is the seventh house in the Service League's Hope House program, which provides recently released county jail inmates with transitional housing, as well as intensive residential substance-abuse treatment.
As executive director, Mr. Nevin, who died in 2012, led the expansion of the Hope House program, which now has seven facilities with capacity to treat 50 clients.
Karen Francone, current executive director of the Service League, and Mike Scanlon, president of the Service League board of directors, spoke at the dedication. Cathy Nevin, Mr. Nevin's widow, attended the ceremonies.
