Please Help the Homeless Shelter

Two pieces about the homeless shelter, one letter in the ABH from the people in charge, and a fine writeup from Ben Emmanuel at Flagpole.  If you haven’t sent in a check yet, please do so.  

As Ben puts it, “AAHS is the only long-term transitional shelter in Athens. Other shelters provide emergency housing - stays of short duration - for men and women, and the Interfaith Hospitality Network typically houses, long-term, a few families at a time. But AAHS is a critical local resource for single homeless women and for homeless families with children. Residents can stay there for up to several months, and the focus of the shelter’s programming is on finding work and getting one’s family out of homelessness.”

By the way, does anyone know if there’s an online way to donate?  We’d be more than happy to link.
