The PATH homeless shelter, formerly known as Casa Esperanza, will open Friday and Saturday nights to an additional 100 people due to a forecast of rain.


Homeless Shelter to Open for Expected Rains


The shelter on Cacique Street is ready to welcome an additional 100 new guests, an arrangement made when the forecast seemed positive for rain Friday through Saturday. That forecast has abated, but, nonetheless, the shelter operated by PATH (People Assisting The Homeless), said Chuck Flacks, program director, will provide meals, showers, beds, and social services to whoever walks through the doors at 816 Cacique Street. Guests must check in by 5 p.m. on Friday; checkout time is 8 a.m. on Sunday after breakfast.
