Quote of the Day | November 21, 2018

Too many resources in our city can only be accessed by those in a position to work a program, a barrier to receiving shelter. Simply put, they require too much of guests who cannot see beyond relief from the elements, let alone be in a position to make a commitment to sobriety or provide identification. We are shattering that barrier by ensuring there are low barriers to securing shelter on the coldest of nights.

-Adam Luck, CEO at City Care, on the importance of providing adequate shelter to those in need on cold weather nights. [Source: NewsOK]
