UGM Opens New Crisis Shelter For Women And Children

The lack of adequate shelter beds in Spokane for women in crisis has been an on-going embarrassment for some time. Great article in The Spokesman-Review about the new women’s shelter opening up. Kudos to Union Gospel Mission for stepping up and making a significant investment toward resolving this problem. Unfortunately, as Phil Altmeyer (Executive Director at UGM) recently told me, even this won’t be enough. Read about it here.
