COLUMBUS-HOMELESS FAMILIES
Agency expands space for Columbus-area homeless families as numbers continue to grow

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 6:45 AM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Central Ohio's homeless agency is expanding space for displaced families as the number of parents and children with no place to live increases.

The YWCA Family Center opened in 2005 with a capacity for 50 people and is now trying to serve 140 families.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Thursday that the Community Shelter Board, the area's local homeless agency, modified plans for a new adult shelter to include a second area for homeless families.

The board has long preferred getting families in permanent housing, even paying relatives to take family members in, rather than build new shelters.

But shelter board Executive Director Michelle Heritage says the system still has to get people off the streets. She says significant numbers of beds haven't been added since 2001.
