There is a full house just about every night at the Hospitality House Homeless shelter located at the end of Sutton Way in Grass Valley.
Joanna Robinson is the Development Director at Hospitality House, she says the social workers spend lots of time training the homeless and finding them jobs so they can become self sufficient.
A lot of the work they do for the homeless is made possible through federal grants, but Robinson says Hospitality House is in danger of loosing some of it’s major funding next year because of a change on emphasis by the Federal Government.
To help bridge the funding gap Hospitality House is working on opening a Thrift store, called the Bread and Roses Thrift and More, and will be announcing a grand opening soon.
They also have launched an Indigogo Campaign to raise start up funds for the thrift store. Details of that are at their website www.HHShelter.org.
