To meet the needs of our city’s homeless population, Dégagé Ministries has expanded their hours. Identifying a gap in the community, local social service and municipal agencies have struggled to know where to direct our city’s homeless population during the afternoon hours so they can “warm up” and get off the street. Dégagé was grateful to answer the call and recently expanded its Dining Room services by 5 ½ hours each afternoon. It is now open seven days a week from 7:00 am-8:00 pm. Men and women staying in local missions must leave their facilities by 7:00 am and often have no place to go during these hours.
