Uptown Shelter Opens Doors Again After Last Minute Donation
A men’s shelter that was on the brink of closing is now welcoming homeless guests again.
The Interim Men’s Housing Program in Uptown was going to close because it couldn’t raise much-needed private funds last year, but a last minute donation saved it.
The shelter started taking in guests on Tuesday and will likely be back at its capacity -- 72 people -- in February.
Meanwhile, an influx of other donations have allowed the program to increase staff and undertake renovations.
