Organizations Prepare To Fill Gap Left By Closure

Local organizations are trying to figure out how the needs of people who are homeless in the city will continue to be met now that the Salvation Army Center of Hope has announced its closure in April.

Jenny O'Connell of the Human Development Council tells CHSJ News the goal of the various organizations is to make sure all the people currently using the shelter will have access to housing--but a lot still needs to be decided.

O'Connell described the tone of the meeting earlier this week as hopeful despite the lingering uncertainties.
