GEORGETOWN – Late January is Georgetown Public Library’s targeted soft launching for a voluntary peer-based pilot program designed to help those facing homelessness and crisis.
Coined Kindness Corner, the pilot program will enlist trained peer volunteers.
“It is going to be targeted mainly toward homeless people and people in crisis, but it is going to be open to everybody,” said Sherri Scott, Georgetown Public Library’s Director of Youth Services. “It is to benefit mainly those in crisis situations; people that might be temporarily homeless.”
