Homeless shelter request gets approval to proceed

2018-09-12 - Basement, Adair Annex, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener,
J.O.Y. Ministries, represented by Maggie Coleman, standing, and Lee Ann Jessie, seated, made their formal request for the lease of space on the lot beside the county's 9-1-1 Center at High & Merchant Street for an Emergency Shelter for Adair County homeless or near homeless citizens. J.O.Y. Ministries will provide the shelter building and pay the monthly costs and work with local law enforcement. The request was approved, and in a phone interview after the meeting, Coleman said, "at almost the same exact moment I was presenting to the Fiscal Court, my cell phone had received a message requesting help for a family of four who needed shelter for the night. It's very much needed." - LW
