One kind word can warm three winter months.
Winter has been here for a while and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere soon. The snow, ice and plunging temperature makes daily routines challenging. More than 100 children bundle up each morning and walk down the snowy sidewalks to school. Adult shelter guests make their way to important appointments, training programs and precious employment even when the weather poses an additional obstacle.
CCO case managers and support staff work each day to try to bridge the gap between homelessness and housing for everyone who comes through our doors. We’re proud of our shelter guests and the effort and determination that they bring to the many challenges they face.
