We are happy to announce that our community of 300+ homeless men and women…will be going back to sleep inside their shelters tonight.
We are reopening because the $44,000 that the National FEMA Board had cut from our yearly budget was restored. We are reopening because the SHARE Shelter Board had a fabulously successful Auction last Sunday night, that resulted in a $25,000 check delivered yesterday to SHARE.
Also yesterday, the City of Seattle agreed to reimburse SHARE for all costs contractually incurred already in this month, on Monday October 24th. (Usually we only get reimbursed once, a month, around the 7th.) That should keep us going until the FEMA check arrives.
All SHARE shelters, including the shelter at Gift of Grace are now open.
