Midcoast Emergency Shelter to be up and Running Soon

Rockport - The only emergency homeless shelter in Midcoast Maine will likely reopen in the next few weeks.
Deborah Turcotte of the Maine State Housing Authority says they're working to secure a lease agreement for the Rockport property with the Knox County Homeless Coalition and the New Hope for Women organization.

 

In November, the Hospitality House unexpectedly shut down, and since then, the Maine State Housing Authority has taken full ownership and responsibility for the property. Authorities say the building was left in functional condition. Former owner, Gordon Mank Junior, has yet to explain why he abandoned it.
