TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka homeless shelter has started work on a $3.6 million day care facility.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1KTvePp ) reports that children from the Topeka Rescue Mission participated in a groundbreaking Friday for the Children’s Palace. It will provide daytime care to homeless children up to age 5.

Director of children’s ministry Jessica Hosman says the Children’s Palace is slated to be completed in April 2016. It will be able to serve 124 children.

The day care is part of a building campaign that also will include new shelter space and a renovation of the current shelter to house a larger adult training area and bigger kitchen and medical clinic. The final phase will be an addition to the Children’s Palace that will house after-school and summer programs for school-aged children.
