A new homeless shelter in Attleboro had its groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday. State Rep. James Hawkins announced that the shelter located at 150 Pleasant St. would have 18 emergency adult beds and 22 studio apartments, along with support services for mental health, addiction, and literacy. Hawkins emphasized that the shelter is fully funded and staffed with professionals. He also noted that the shelter is conveniently accessible to public transportation, Sturdy Memorial Hospital, MassHire, and a library. The shelter garnered support from the community as Hawkins carefully presented the shelter’s purpose to prevent any surprises. The old ways of lingering in the shelter are gone, and this shelter aims to end homelessness. An additional image and links are present in the original post.
