New Homeless Shelter Being Constructed

New Homeless Shelter Being Constructed

by Sara Vogt - June 30, 2022

WELLSBORO – There is a brand new Homeless Shelter being constructed in Tioga County. In the past ten years of operating the previous smaller shelter they were able to assist over 1,000 people, including families and singles. This new shelter will provide benevolent homeless services to the residents of the future that find themselves in need. Abby Thorborg,Tioga Country Homeless Initiative Director, gave The Home Page Network a progress report as of June 29, 2022.

Currently, plans have been approved, building permits have been secured, and the excavation process has been completed. The walls have also been set in place for the basement.

To date the Tioga County Homeless Initiative has raised $800,000 for the project which will provide the funds to build the outside of the building. They are still raising money to complete the interior of the building which is estimating another $800,000 for completion.

If you would like to volunteer to help keep cost down please call 570-724-9001. Volunteers are needed in everything from working hammers and nails to drywall installation. Management is trying to keep the cost near the overall 1.5 million dollars projection for the project. You can help! If you want more information about the work of the Tioga County Homeless Initiative, please visit their website at tiogahomeless.org. Or call them at 570-439-9383.

And, if you would like to donate to the building fund, you can mail your check to 2580 Charleston Road in Mansfield, PA 16933.
Abby stated that the building completion date could be early winter but that ultimately that date is in God’s hands. Please keep this project in your prayers.

The Home Page Network will keep you updated as progress unfolds. You can also watch for any updates on the project on HPN NEWS.
