A Bright Spot This New Year

A bright spot this new year is that the Taos Men’s Shelter has moved to its new location. The building was moved Dec. 26 in the snow and cold. “Now all we need is electricity, water, sewage and flooring,” reports Executive Director Jeff Sattler.

The new site was prepped and foundation poured in mid-December. The shelter will house about 20 men per night when it opens. Taos temperatures have been dipping down below zero at night lately but thanks to donations and kindly innkeepers, most homeless men and women have been able to stay in warm motel rooms.

Your donations to the shelter are much appreciated.  Visit their site for more info and an easy way to donate:  http://www.taosmensshelter.org/

Here are some photos that Jeff sent me of the construction.  Progress even in the dead of winter.  Something to celebrate!
