United Way for Clinton County has provided $115,000 for a new homeless shelter in Frankfort named Home for the Night. The shelter will be located in the current United Way Building at 1100 Walnut Ave. in Frankfort. United Way offices will be relocated to the Healthy Communities building at 1234 Rossville Ave. in Frankfort
Center Township Trustee, Jami Pratt and her staff have been working diligently to provide shelter for individuals and families in need over the past three years. Pratt pulled together a partnership of United Way, Healthy Communities, and Bauer Family Resources, whose staff members have worked earnestly to find a location before winter to house displaced individuals. The funding was provided through a grant from IU Health.
