St. Matthew’s House is preparing as federal benefits are ending.
Federal unemployment benefits ended last week and we’re preparing for even more people to look for help through our services.
Steve Brooder, our Chief Operating Officer spoke with Fox 4 News last week saying,
“We would serve 60 to 100 people a week. We’re now, as I said, seeing 600 to 800 households 3 times a week, so the numbers have just increased dramatically.”
“We see a dramatic need for transitional housing that’s increasing. People that may have been in our shelters are now looking for some affordable housing. That also will just be increasing as a problem in the community if some of these programs stop.”
