ABCCM'S NEW SHELTER FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN SET TO OPEN THIS WEEKEND

Officials say they now have 330 lockers and updated bathrooms with more stalls and showers that will provide some much-needed breathing room.

"The building was designed to maybe see 5 people in a day. So, we were just bursting at the seams for many many years. Just to have this renovation has meant that we can really better serve the population that we are seeing here," said service director Kate Caton.

CODE PURPLE ISSUED, BUT COVID-19 MEANS NOWHERE FOR THOSE IN NEED TO GO

The number of people allowed inside the shelter is still being limited due to the pandemic.

The shelter is open Monday-Friday, 8 am-12 pm.
