1/7/2010 – Shelter Spotlight

January 7, 2010


Hey There Readers! I hope you’re enjoying this arctic weather blast that most of United States is feeling right now, because I’m certainly not. That being said, I’m here (slightly frozen) with your daily dose of the Shelter Spotlight. Today, we’re taking a trip to The Healing Place in Louisville, Kentucky operated by its Chairman and CEO Jay Davidson.

The Healing Place is unique in that it offers some this country’s most comprehensive recovery programs for both Men and Women. Whether you know someone suffering from alcoholism, drug addiction, or someone on the verge of a breakdown The Healing Place is the answer. Offering shelter for the homeless through a regimented program sets The Healing Place apart from various other shelters in the area. Like many other shelters, The Healing Place doesn’t discriminate against anyone no matter if you are Hispanic, African-American or Caucasian. The Healing Place is located at 1020 West Market Street – Louisville, KY 40202. They can be reached via phone at 502-583-0369.

Here’s An Overview Of Their Overnight Shelter Program:At 2:30 p.m. every day, tickets numbered one to the total number of men waiting for a bed are passed. At 4 p.m. a random drawing determines those who will stay in the shelter that night; all others have to find alternate lodging. At check-in, each person will receive a pillow, sheets, and a blanket. The person will be able to take a hot shower, make their bed, and get a set of clothing from the clothes closet. They will then eat supper, and the lights are turned out at 9 p.m. Wake-up is at 6 a.m., followed by breakfast. The overnight guest must be out of the shelter by 8 a.m“. – From The Healing Place’s Website – http://www. thehealingplace.org
