With support from our generous donors, Open Your Heart provided Partners for Housing with funding to help heat and cool a common space area in their newly created homeless shelter building, Union Street Place. Partners for Housing believes it is essential that affordable housing and temporary shelter be available to those in need. Union Street Place shelter was purchased for Partners for Housing by a generous donor group to create a shelter from a motel in June 2018 and today has 14 private sleeping rooms for those who were experiencing homelessness. This property has blossomed in the past year and a half due to a variety of foundations and funders, volunteers, a community that has really wrapped their arms around the shelter to care for their neighbors, and an amazing staff.
