Individuals seeking shelter have another place to turn to for assistance.
Reverend Emmanuel Luther of Freeman Chapel and Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp made a joint announcement that beginning tomorrow, Freeman Chapel, located at 137 South Virginia Street will open its basement for daytime shelter services from 9 am through 5pm daily.
Shelter services will include restroom facilities, a television, and refreshments like hot coffee, juice, and continental snacks.
Reverend Luther stated members of his congregation look forward to working to meet the needs of a changing community.
The local Salvation Army, another program partner, will also continue to offer meals at noon and evening shelter services at its facilities on East Seventh Street.
