On November 17, the Salvation Army of Greater Cleveland held the Building Dedication and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new Zelma George Emergency Family Shelter. The new shelter will enable the Salvation Army to better serve area families in need — providing increased space and privacy with 35 individual family units. Families will be able to stay at the shelter for up to 90 days with housing services available to work towards residential stability.
Raymond M. Murphy, who oversaw the fundraising efforts as Campaign Chairman, said the following at the dedication: “I am so proud to be a Clevelander today. With all the exciting things going on in our town, Clevelanders have again shown that they are not forgetting their neighbors who still need a hand up. And they are trusting The Salvation Army, with its 150 years of experience, to provide that help.”
