GREENVILLE – On June 4, Hands Across the Darke, a community service club went on a tour of the homeless shelter in Darke County. Carol Littman, who is the office manager at the Community Action Partnership Office, told the group about the Darke County Homeless Shelter.

She explained the home was built in 1982 and they have been able to serve more than 170 people. While staying at the shelter, individuals and families can take advantage of a nice, clean place to stay with food, clean bedding, and warm showers. They are asked to look for a job while staying and, if needed, assistance will be provided.

After Littman talked to the group about the homeless shelter, they went to tour the shelter. They got to look at each of the rooms in the house. If members of the community would like to donate to the Homeless Shelter, contact Littman at Community Action Partnership.

Hands Across the Darke will have its next meeting July 2 at 7 p.m. at the OSU Extension Office in Greenville.
