While the REACH office has moved into permanent headquarters at 140 W. Franklin St., Suite 300, there is still work to be done before the cold weather shelter can relocate there.
"As with any construction, there have been delays," said Terri Baker, executive director of REACH. "The kitchen equipment won't be installed until the end of March."
There are other things that aren't completed.
"We are just not in a position where we can have 50 people housed here yet," she said Friday.
Because of that, REACH needed to call on area churches to come up with last-minute accommodations to finish out the 2004-05 winter season. Baker said many were pulling together to provide temporary sites through the end of March.
