Hunger and Homelessness Week

Posted on 16 November 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—This week has been proclaimed Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week in Iowa and locally, the Boone County Homeless Prevention Board is hosting a open house at the recently opened Crawford Hall Family Shelter.  Pastor Andrea Kraushaar of the First United Methodist Church says homelessness in Boone County doesn’t always look like homelessness in big cities.  However, it’s a growing problem evident by the fact that the new shelter has only been open a month and half and has been full since the doors opened.  The Thursday open house will be from 4:30 to 6:30 and the public is welcome.
