Homeless need help

The homeless have had another setback due to the state budget holding up funds that fund shelters and help with emergency rental assistance and motels.

Holy Angel Shelter has done a great job in serving women with children and single women. Without this shelter the needy of St. Clair County area and beyond would have had much more suffering.

Besides shelter, Holy Angel offers a multitude of services including budgeting and aftercare. Without the funding they are struggling to exist.

If you can help in any way to keep this important service in operation, please contact Gerry Hasenstab at 618-398-5616 or send donations to: Holy Angel Shelter, P.O. 3310, East St. Louis, IL 62203.

Please pray this deadlock ends soon.
