As winter shelter opens for season, housing crisis looms

The Concord Coalition to End Homelessness announced:
The Emergency Winter Shelter opened on December 1! It runs out of the former First Church, where the Resource Center is also housed due to Covid. For the first 2 weeks the shelter was 100% run by CCEH employees, but since Dec.15 volunteers are welcomed once again for sign-in and sign-out times! To volunteer, please click HERE – We NEED you!!
It is so wonderful to be able to offer a warm, dry space for those in need to sleep in safety.

On its first night, 18 people came out of the cold to stay at the emergency winter shelter run by the Concord Coalition to End Homelessness. As the Coalition searches for more staff and volunteers to keep the shelter going into a second pandemic winter, Concord finds itself in the midst of a housing crisis and not just for those who have been sleeping outside.
