BURLINGTON — A group that provides emergency shelter and homelessness prevention programs in Burlington is temporarily moving its daytime shelter to a church while it works to secure a permanent location.
The Committee on Temporary Shelter, or COTS, has been operating its Daystation out of temporary sites since July when its facility was destroyed by a flood. Officials on Thursday announced that First United Methodist Church of Burlington has offered its parsonage for use this winter.
The Daystation is a daytime shelter for single adults and offers the only free nutritious lunch in downtown Burlington.
Guests can use the shelter to receive mail, email and phone messages, and can get help with employment, housing, health screenings and other services.MORE IN Vermont NewsWASHINGTON — For someone who rails almost daily against big money in politics, Bernie Sanders has...
