The Alliance worked closely with the Barry Menashe family, Commissioner Dan Saltzman’s office and Transition Projects Inc. to facilitate the opening of a temporary men’s shelter at SW 4th and SW Washington. The shelter space, which was donated by the Barry Menashe family, opened on Monday, Jan. 18, moving from idea to reality in a remarkably short period of time. The shelter will house 100 men, with priority given to veterans, those over 55 and those with disabilities. Clients can stay for three to six months, gaining access to services at Bud Clark Commons during the day. The Alliance also worked with Commissioner Saltzman’s office and Transition Projects to ensure the shelter operations will use best practices and minimize impact to the surrounding neighborhood and businesses.
