Homeless Shelter Will Have Home Through Winter

The 65-bed REST emergency homeless center will remain open throughout the winter at two temporary locations. For the duration of the year, REST will remain at Epworth United Methodist Church. From January 1st through May 1st of next year, the shelter will move a mile west to Ebenezer Lutheran Church, 1650 W. Foster. REST was originally scheduled to close at its current location after the Epworth church doubled the rent paid by the organization, but yesterday the church relented and allowed the shelter to stay one more month. A search for a more permanent location will continue.
