ST. LOUIS, Mo. - When it's dark and someone has no where else to go due to homelessness or mental illness the streets can be a scary and dangerous place to be.
The Society of St. Vincent DePaul believes it's found a way to help in East St. Louis and few people have tried to help more than Charlie Cullen and Joe Hubbard who have joined us on Fox 2 in the Morning to discuss what they have been doing for the community.
You've got a long way to go. A concept that is very successful in many cities. Construction is underway on the St. Vincent DePaul.
Cullen and Hubbard explain, this is not a motel or rooming house but a night drop-in center for people who suddenly find themselves homeless, due to many possible issues everything from addiction to financial issues it is not a permanent housing situation but an often lifesaving bandaid this will be for men, women, children, families etc.
