The city of Attleboro in Massachusetts held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new homeless shelter at 150 Pleasant St. The shelter, fully funded and professionally staffed, will provide 18 emergency adult beds and 22 studio apartments with support services for mental health, addiction, and literacy. State Rep. James Hawkins spoke about the importance of the shelter and how lawmakers were able to garner community support without causing surprise. The shelter also has access to public transportation and is close to Sturdy Memorial Hospital, MassHire, and a library. An embedded Google map of the location is included.
