Patriot Ledger: Plymouth group gets shelter program started for another winter

With overnight temperatures starting to dip below freezing, a small but dedicated group of volunteers is mobilizing to ensure that the community’s homeless population has a warm place to sleep.

In partnership with Father Bill’s and MainSpring, the Plymouth Task Force to End Homelessness started its Overnights of Hospitality program for the season last weekend.

The program offers overnight shelter to homeless people from November to March at two local churches, Christ Church Episcopal and the First Baptist Church. In addition to a warm place to spent the night, those who take advantage of the program receive a warm meal.
