The city of Eureka has come to the conclusion that the number of homeless people wandering the streets on a daily basis has to be addressed. So one option that could potentially have a positive result is a homeless day center. Local charity worker Betty Chinn has said she’ll run the place — but the proposed location, Runeberg Hall on Wabash and Union Streets, has put nearby residents and businesses into an uproar.
In this LoCO Video Report we find out more about the proposed project and take you to Thursday night’s community meeting where the crowd brought strong opposition.
