SHARE shelter opens tonight, see video

September 15th, 2010 by master

KING 5 was at Gift of Grace Lutheran Church this morning, reporting on the SHARE (Seattle Housing and Resource Effort) homeless shelter that will open there tonight at 7 p.m. Up to 15 men and women will be housed in the church’s balcony. Some neighbors and many parents whose children attend the Huckleberry Forest Preschool in the church basement are angry with how the church has handled the addition of the shelter to the community.

The hours of the shelter and the preschool will not overlap, insists Pastor Jami Fecher, nor will they share any space.

This video contains footage from the community meeting on Sunday described in detail here.

On Monday KIRO ran this story about the Huckleberry Preschool parents’ concerns. It also features a tour of the shelter space.
