Mill Creek's Rotary Club helped transform a detached garage into an office space for the Peoria Home.

Peoria Home staff, board of directors, and residents held an official ribbon cutting reception to celebrate their newly renovated property Sept. 24.

Peoria Home is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting survivors of sex trafficking and prostitution. This two-year residential program provides sanctuary and support for women.

Paula Newman-Skomski shared her journey of creating Peoria Home with the Mill Creek Rotary Club in March 2018. Since then, the club has spent time volunteering to transform a section of property at the home.

"Our goal was to educate and to spread the word of our new Snohomish County program," Newman-Skomski said.  

The Rotary Club helped paint a detached garage on the Peoria Home property upon first meeting Newman-Skomski. Mike Mallihan and Scott Tenhulzen, Rotary members and owners of Tenhulzen Painting and Construction Partners, renovated the building with the help of Dunn Lumber and Everett and Seattle Rotary groups.

At the opening Sept. 24, the garage was transformed into an office area with space to focus on social enterprise.
