This facility serves in excess of 100 homeless men and wommen on a daily basis with food basics, hot showers, essential clothing. Most importantly they provide main-streaming by acquiring birth certificates, establishing State ID cards, training to obtaed high school equivalency certificates and finally job training. This facility is run super efficientlty with the guests heavily involved in administration of their own programs. The key person however is Sister MacCannon BRown.
