Community organizations are spearheading a program to help New Braunfels’ homeless utilizing a “coordinator entry shelter” model, but the program needs funding to ensure it comes to fruition.

The collaborative effort, which includes the Comal County Homeless Coalition, NB Housing Partners, McKenna Foundation and Serve Spot, a coalition of local pastors and their congregations, seeks to establish and operate a short-term, hotel-based homeless shelter for adults, with the ultimate goal of becoming a permanent shelter.
