Homelessness committee working on finding new shelter locations

  • 1

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Members of Sarasota's homeless committee met Thursday to get an update on steps being made to curb the problem.

Committee members discussed a homeless shelter project the county and city has been working on. The group reviewed potential locations for a new shelter throughout the county.

Recently, the city and county rejected three potential locations.

A shelter is just the first step in a 12-step plan homelessness expert Dr.Robert Marbut recommended.

The committee is now looking at new sites in unincorporated Sarasota County.
