Since 1999 the City of Murfreesboro has been working on ways to help the homeless population and the less fortunate in our area. One of the plans that is still in the making calls for a centralized campus where those who are homeless or at risk of being homeless, could visit and receive a variety of services by simply walking door to door of local non-profits and mental health care providers.
The Homeless Alliance of Rutherford County (HARC)--an association of service providers of health, housing, social services and education groups, are helping to align such a campus now.
Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland told WGNS (:36 Sec)...
The Homeless Alliance aims to create a centralized campus that will house community resources for a one-stop shop approach. Dates on when such a campus will be created are still up in the air, but the plan is indeed moving forward.
