We have spent many weeks over the past 6 years providing loving overnight shelter to homeless women and children through participation in Mary’s Place’s rotating church shelter. Sadly for us, but happily for the clients, Mary’s Place has decided not to continue the shelter program in 2018. As the organization has grown, they can now provide regular shelter beds to all the families they serve. It’s much easier for the clients to operate from one location while they work for permanent housing, instead of picking up and moving each week. When it started, the rotating shelter was a better and cheaper way to keep families safe when the alternative was paying for hotel rooms. We’re sad to see them go, but happy it’s to a better situation.
On behalf of the all the PRLC coordinators who made this program run, I thank each and every one of you who gave of your time and resources toward this wonderful ministry. We look forward to continued partnerships with Mary’s Place down the road.
