Homeless Hit Shelters in Salisbury After Snow Fall
The homeless are flocking to shelters with the winter blast that promises to put more snow on the ground over the weekend.
Hope and Life Outreach took in 47 people over night.
Executive Director Celeste Savage told the Salisbury Daily Times that the south Boulevard shelter has bed for only 29 people but can expand to 80 with the addition of cots.
Meanwhile, the Community Emergency Shelter Project told the paper that they were expending a full house last night at this week’s host churches.
These include Bethesda United Methodist Church on North Division Street and Allen Memorial Baptist church on Snow Hill Road.
Howard Grise, a volunteer who coordinates the effort at Bethesda, told the paper that there were 30 men in each shelter on Wednesday.
