Welcome center not seen as threat

As the parent of a student who attends Mt. St. Mary’s, a school close to the proposed Hospitality House Welcome Center, I would like to show my support for the Welcome Center location at the Methodist Church. As part of a community service project, my daughter volunteered at Hospitality House one evening last winter and saw homeless children who were close to her own age. I hate to think of children like these having no other place to go this year. I have read The Union articles and personally feel no threat to my child’s safety by having the welcome center located at the Methodist Church.

The people who are served by Hospitality House are a presence in our community regardless of whether we welcome them in out of the cold, or choose to ignore them I hope our community has the courage and generosity to continue the good work that was has started last year by Hospitality House.
