Hutchinson Emergency Shelter Closes for Lack of Grant

KSAL StaffJuly 1, 2015

An emergency overnight shelter in Hutchinson has closed with little warning because it didn’t receive a federal grant.

Officials with NOEL Lodge, a shelter operated by New Beginnings Inc., said they are trying to find a way to reopen with private donations. The shelter closed Tuesday and five shelter staff members were let go.

The Hutchinson News reports the Housing and Urban Development usually announces Emergency Solutions Grant awards before July 1. The shelter’s grant ended Tuesday and officials had not heard about a renewed grant.

Manager Juan Gonzalez said the organization will see if it can get support from the community and reopen.

Gonzalez says the shelter housed 17 people and often had to turn people away.
