    an urgent need for the facility.

    Does "the facility" refer back to the "new children's home"?

    ===========================
    be that as it may
    formal

    used to mean that you accept that a piece of information is true but it does not change your opinion of the subject you are discussing:
    Building a new children's home will cost a lot of money but, be that as it may, there is an urgent need for the facility.
