Helping the Homeless: Thermal Shelter of Front Royal

We met up with Michelle Smeltzer, Community Liaison for Warren County Social Services to learn more about the resources that are available to the community through her agency. She told us about all the connections she helps to make, reminded us about their resource app, and told us about their new job developer.

In the second segment we talked about the Thermal Shelter of Front Royal. She gave us details for who and how many the shelters served last season and talked about her expectations for this winter. The shelter will open on December 11, 2021. Michelle also gave us a quick rundown of items that are always welcomed for donations.
