Grand opening ceremonies and tours for a new homeless shelter and transitional apartments operated by The Bridge nonprofit will be held Oct. 19.
Occupancy of the building, located at 735 N. Park St., is expected in mid-September, and the Bridge expects to have some the first apartments occupied soon thereafter.
The Bridge is currently conducting a fundraising campaign in an effort to raise $15,000 to assist in the acquisition of such things as furnishings, kitchen wares, and window treatments. The Bridge would also like to provide a large meeting table for the shelter.
Anyone interested in donating to help the Bridge put the finishing touches on the new shelter can donate online at www.thebridgeshelter.org or send a check to the Bridge at P.O. Box 56 in Cortez.
The final capital campaign will continue through Aug. 20.
