Allison Batson honored by United Way of Greater New Haven
From the article:
Batson has never missed a Dinner for a Dollar night in eight years. In her spare time (!) she volunteers at warming centers in Hamden and helps on the homeless front through service on the board of Columbus House. ...
Batson’s work on Dinner for a Dollar, is only the tip of the iceberg of a life of tireless service.
“She’s ‘infamous’,” Heath said in circles of people who are attempting to meet unmet needs in Hamden.
HAMDEN WARMING CENTER AGAIN LOCATES AT GRACE & ST PETER’S
In early January, Hamden mayor Curt Balzano Leng announced that the town of Hamden would open a seasonal “overnight warming center” for the homeless for a second year, in partnership with Columbus House, Inc.
The center is making use of the undercroft (church basement) at Grace & St Peter’s, as it did last year. This year the center is operating nightly, in contrast to last year when it originally opened only during exceptionally cold weather.
