According to Director Beth Flory, local data shows that last year, each night, more than 200 adults and children stayed in an emergency shelter, hotel room, or motel.

“That’s 233 individuals that didn’t go home because they felt unsafe. That doesn’t count the number of people who may have stayed with a family, or friend, or stayed in their car,” Flory said.
