DAVIES SHELTER CONTINUES WORK ON THE RUTH AND NAOMI PROJECT, CONDUCTS POINT IN TIME HOMELESS SURVEY

Written by Matt Davis on February 5, 2019. Posted in Uncategorized

The Ruth and Naomi Project, an effort by the William S. Davies Homeless Shelters to offer a homeless shelter to women and children in the community, should soon come to fruition, though its exact opening date has not yet been determined. Devon Smyth, Executive Director of the Davies Shelter, awaits the placement of a water line for the Ruth and Naomi facility on North Broad Street. In the meantime, work continues on the interior of the shelter. The community may get updates on the project via Facebook, attests Smyth, who urges supporters to stay tuned for information about a ribbon cutting and open house that will be held when the facility opens.

The shelter will have the capacity to serve eight single women as well as four mothers with children, adds Smyth. Volunteers with the Davies Shelter administered a county-wide Point in Time Homeless Count last week. Smyth states that the federally-mandated survey revealed that there are 200 homeless people who are living without shelter in Rome and Floyd County. She hopes that participation in the homeless count will allow her organization to generate additional money to assist those who are impacted by homelessness. Smyth indicates that the Davies Shelter is always happy to accept donations from the public; those interested may donate online and get more information online at www.daviesshelter.com.
