Progress is being made in the effort to move the homeless who take shelter in the Civic Center. The House of Mercy says it’s ready to step in.

Last month, the corporation that runs the parking garage decided to begin moving the homeless staying there into shelters. Security officers have been handing them pamphlets. One option is the Huther Doyle building at the corner of Clinton Avenue and Cumberland Street.

Sister Grace, House of Mercy, said, “All we know is we’re ready. We’re set, we’re ready.”

The facility is nearby the Civic Center. The facility could house about 30 people.
