Kensington Community Meeting on Family Shelter
Thursday, December 10th, 6:30 p.m.
A community meeting will be held for Kensington residents so that any questions we have about the soon-to-be-opened family shelter will be answered. Representatives from city government, including the Department of Homeless Services, the Department of Education, and City Hall, will be at the meeting.
The scheduled opening date for this transitional residence is December 7th. It will be located at 385 McDonald Avenue, near Albemarle Road, across the street from Foodtown.
The shelter, to be called The Kensington, has enough rooms for sixty-four families with children. It will be fully occupied by early January.
The shelter, funded by the Department of Homeless Services, offers families a supportive, structured, therapeutic, safe, and drug-free facility.
The goal is to provide emergency housing and supportive services to homeless people to help them transition into permanent housing.
RSVP for the community meeting here.
