Director set sights on new building
It’s been almost five years since an arsonist lit the Country Mall fire and completely destroyed a building that housed 12 offices. And like many of the organizations that lost everything that chilly November night in 2007, the Yampa Valley Pregnancy Center found a way to persevere. “There was such a generous outpouring from the community,” said director Katie Grobe. “We also received a lot of donations from other pregnancy centers throughout the state and from Gerber, which helped us to maintain services.” Grobe is entering her third year as the director of the Yampa Valley Pregnancy Center, which has been housed in the Faith Lutheran Church annex building at 580 Green St. since the Country Mall fire.
