Public invited to the Transitions DMC open house on Sunday

Transitions DMC, the homeless shelter moved to a warming center as a freezing cold snap hit the Midwest in February 2021. People are invited to an open house from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the refuge.

Transitions DMC invites the community to its grand opening and open house at its non-profit shelter helping the homeless – the most vulnerable people in poverty – at 515 S. Main St.

The event will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday and will offer self-guided tours. Board members will be there to answer questions. Refreshments will include homemade pastries.

Since opening Jan. 20, nearly six years to the day after Transitions DMC became a ministry to the homeless and poor in Southeast Iowa, the 13-bed emergency shelter has helped guiding 62 people into permanent housing, according to Craig Fenton, founder and chairman of the board.

In total, Transitions DMC has helped around 500-600 people.
