Jody Suhrbier, the association president, recently sent this email to her list of regular contacts:
This evening, I received a phone call from Selena Kilmoyer, administrator at Bread & Roses, who operates the shelter on 8th Ave. Some temporary changes are coming to this location, and I suspect some of you will want to know about them.
Bread & Roses also operates a men’s shelter on Devoe St., which is being replaced by a larger facility. It was originally thought that the men in this shelter could stay in the old unit while the new one was being built. They have recently found out that this will not be possible. Selena met with members of the Transitional Housing Authority to identify the best solution to the situation last week, and together they decided the
-the women currently housed at the 8th Ave. women’s shelter (duplex) will be
moved into apartments ASAP.
-8 men will be moved from Devoe street to the 8th Ave. shelter as soon as
Selena assures me that the 8 men will be screened to be the safest men of the group, though we didn’t get into detail about this.
These changes are temporary and expected to last until December of 2006.
If you have any questions or comments, please let me know, and I can compile them and speak again with Selena in a few days.
