New manager and assistant manager
Butler Homeless Initiative is gearing up for the upcoming cold weather season. The shelter at 202 N. Taylor will be open beginning Nov. 1, 2018. Check in time begins at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 8 p.m. Guests enjoy a meal every evening. Check out time is 9 a.m. following breakfast. There will be opportunities for housing through case management available to guests.
This year the shelter is proud to announce a new shelter manager and assistance manager. Hollie Jimenez has multiple years of experience working in the shelter. She comes with a lot of energy and new ideas. Ed Maddern is new to the shelter but has vast experience working with people. Both are committed to making this the best shelter season ever.
In partnership with the El Dorado First Church of the Nazarene at 202 N. Taylor, BHI opened its shelter doors for its first cold weather season on Nov. 1 2016. The shelter serves up to 10 guests a night and offers a women’s dorm, a men’s dorm, and family sleeping rooms.
There are many ways to volunteer to help those in need. If interested contact Hollie at 316-323-0151.
