Bob Rhodes, a man who has been using the Hospitality Center of Racine all winter, talks about how he scared he is about living on the streets again at night when the emergency night shelter closes next week. He also mentioned how for him, having a place to go like the Hospitality Center made a difference in his life. Last night hundreds of people showed up to talk about how to end homelessness in Racine at Gateway Technical College, but the discussion really focused on the long-term aspects of the topic. Meanwhile, Bob and several others who either will choose not to go to or can’t go to Halo Inc., another homeless shelter in town, will likely be out on the streets.
