Green Bay Diocese steps up to help homeless again

The Catholic Diocese of Green Bay has again stepped up and filled a void that others were either unwilling to or unable to.

The diocese is set to open in October a year-round resource center that will provide a daytime destination for homeless people in downtown Green Bay.

The Micah Center, 700 E. Walnut St., will include a resource center for classes and workshops on employment readiness, budgeting, personal finance, nutrition, anger management, healthy relationships. Visitors will find a reading room, computer lab that can be used to prepare resumes or seek employment, lounge area, game/recreation area, locker room for personal belongings, and an Alcoholics Anonymous site.

It's not the first time the diocese has addressed such a need. It already operates the St. John the Evangelist Homeless Shelter, which lets in homeless people with alcohol and drug problems who aren't eligible to stay at the New Community Shelter, which has a zero tolerance policy.
