Vermont Warming Shelter To Remain Open Through The Winter
A Vermont warming shelter will remain open for another year as officials work to find a permanent location.
The Northeast Kingdom Human Services will continue to host the St. Johnsbury Area Warming Shelter at a building on their nearby campus.
The agency, which partners with Northeast Kingdom Community to run the program, has been attempting to find a new permanent home for the past two winter seasons.
The Caledonian Record reports a local committee has been created to find a suitable alternative location, which has proven to be a difficult and drawn out process.
The current host says the location now operates on the lower level of a small building and provides 10 beds with just one bathroom and a cramped space for staff.
