Until a permanent facility is available, Omaha's homeless people will have a day shelter in a renovated construction warehouse. It is anticipated that a permanent facility will be available in about two years. The shelter opened on Monday, December 1 as part of the Siena-Francis House and will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. It will have the capacity to help 160 people.
In addition to services for basic care, such as showers and bath tubs, the day care will have case managers, social workers, and staff trained in drug and alcohol counseling. There will be an employment training program available as provided by eight people from Siena-Francis House.
Through the day shelter, the homeless will be helped with housing, education, and employment opportunities. The programs available are designed to help the homeless get off the streets permanently.
