Roseburg, Oregon homeless shelter for teens gets front page writeup

First, I am running way behind around here. The dearth of posts has to do with fun holiday activities and a few recent trips. That to say, I wish I had posted this a week and a half ago.

I was home in Roseburg, Oregon, visiting my parents for the holidays, and noted that the Roseburg News Review published a good write-up about a local homeless shelter for teens and families with teens, Casa de Belen, on Christmas Eve. Casa de Belen is one of the many rural Oregon projects that receive Continuum of Care funding for serving homeless people. It addresses a very specific need in the community, one partially caused by the fact that many shelters, especially those for people fleeing domestic violence situations, do not allow teenage boys. Kudos to Casa de Belen on this favorable media coverage.
