On the Radio - Opening Safe Haven
Community Care Alliance is sheltering at a minimum of 100 people between the homeless shelter and hotel with half of them being children. In addition to the individuals and families we are able to assist there are 60-120 more homeless people currently living on the streets; just in Woonsocket alone. Homelessness is at a rise and with less than 2% of housing available and much of that non-affordable for the average person-no end is in sight. Guests Christa Thomas-Sowers, Community Outreach Coordinator and Axle Cournoyer, Case Manager, discuss how our new warming center, Safe Haven, will help.
