Tioga County Homeless Initiative NEW Shelter Receives Updates
Abby Thorborg, Director of Operations for Tioga County Homeless Initiative, came into the Home Page studios to discuss the new building project.
She mentioned that her passion for the homeless began about twelve years ago. She began ministering to the homeless in church basements, then a tiny house, and now onto the new building! The current location can accommodate 16 individuals, but the new facility can serve around 30.
The outside of the new building is finished and paid for at this time. Abby came to talk about the need for the finances to complete the inside of the building. There are many costs connected to finishing the interior of the building, like plumbing and electrical.
If you want to talk with Abby about supporting the program and learning about the new building project, call 570-724-9001 or 570-439-9383. When asked when they hope to move into their new home, Abby says, “In God’s time.” With support from the community, it could be as early as next summer!
