Men`s Shelter to Open Soon | VideoJoel Porter | 12/17/2012
The job was expected to be finished by Christmas, but supervisors say the plumbing and other interior work needs to be finished. Executive director Jaclyn Bugbee says they`ve added eight additional beds in the past few weeks, so they haven`t had to turn people away.
"Which has been able to alleviate some of the stress that we have on our overnight shelter. And so that`s kind of giving us a little bit of a buffer space as we move into this new structure."
The Horizons emergency shelter is expected to begin housing men in the middle of January. Bugbee says all 120 beds should be ready by the end of January.
