Mayor Buckhorn was on hand for the grand opening of Metropolitan Ministries’ MiraclePlace and joined six little ones to break ground on a new chapel.

"MiraclePlace is another amazing example of how our community looks out for one another. Because of their efforts and the donors locally who support Metropolitan Ministries throughout the year, hundreds of families will receive the assistance they need to be able to get back on their feet."
