Review for Shelter Association of Washtenaw County, Ann Arbor, MI, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I worked with others to found the first shelter in Ann Arbor, called Arbor Haven. So I have been watching the problem of homelessness for many years. I am grateful for the efforts of so many people to create the Delonis Shelter and to keep it going. It has expanded its services to meet the growing need. The recent brutal winter was a crisis for homeless people, and Delonis is again stepping up its services in response. I am relieved to know that there will be a warm place for homeless people to sleep when winter comes again.
What is still needed is a warming center open during the day. This is not necessarily a mission for Delonis, which is doing so much already. Bill Martin used to furnish a space on Ashley Street, but that building no longer exists. Somewhere, somehow, our community must find a way to meet this need.
