Statement from Mayor Harold Perrin on the homeless shelter

 

“I am saddened by our inability to secure a facility to serve our homeless population. Nothing affects a family's hope for the future like being evicted from their home, so we will continue to work for our homeless.
“But people need to understand the Homeless Ministries of Jonesboro is not trying to create halfway houses that will endanger neighborhoods. They want to be Christian brothers and sisters to our less fortunate residents in their time of need.
“I will say I am pleased with the progress of our HUB in serving the homeless with services and helping connect them with access to jobs and housing and other fundamental needs.
We will continue to press forward to serve our most vulnerable.”
