PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Dom Giordano spoke with Madelyn Mears-Sheldon, the President of Citizens Serving the Homeless on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT. The group has faced opposition from some residents of Lumberton, N.J. where they are planning to build a homeless shelter.
Mears-Sheldon said they have taken the time to hear from the community and adjusted their planning accordingly.
“We were going to have a low demand, walk in shelter. That was our original call. After listening to the concerns, we’re going to be taking referrals from the Board of Social Services in Burlington County, which will first screen people for income eligibility as well as residency and then come in for a second screening in to our facility.”
