Benefit Gala is Scheduled to Help the Homeless in Owensboro
James Barnett of the Daniel Pitino Shelter in Owensboro says his agency is seeing more "first-time" homeless than ever. Barnett says the difficult economy has forced people who had never sought assistance in the past to ask for help.
The Greater Owensboro Realtors Association hopes to help raise dollars for homeless shelters in the area through a Benefit Gala to be held March 23rd at the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art. Dan Modlin has more on the story.
