Opinion | After amazing first season, what’s next for the homeless shelter?

The guests, all folks with nowhere warm to go, stayed the night, as long as they held to the code of conduct, which includes no alcohol or drug use.
About a dozen people came nightly, mostly men, but also a few women, including one mom who found a place to stay for her teenage daughter, but needed her own refuge.
