ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – Abbey Thorborg, Director of Operations for the Tioga County Homeless Initiative was in studio today to talk about what the organization does and how the community can help.
The homeless shelter which is located at 2570 Charleston Road, Mansfield PA gives individuals a warm safe, loving environment for those experiencing homelessness.
The way the initiative works is there’s room for 16 individuals or families at a time and the organization helps these residents get back on their feet and get re-situated.
Individuals are helped getting into contact with support groups to help with their particular situation over the month long stay with the organization.
Thorborg is also inviting community members to an open house, mortgage burning on Saturday, September, 14th from 1-3 PM.
The open house will be showing off what the shelter looks like now, after finally paying it off and showing the changes and improvements made over the past 3 years.
