“This is currently the hospitality room and we all feel like it’s not very hospitable right now,” Missy Threadgill, a HUB volunteer said, as she showed Region 8 News around.
“We would like to spruce it up and make it more comfy,” she said. “This is the room that our guest who are homeless come in and wait while they get an interview with a volunteer. Many of them come in hungry, a lot of them come in from the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter. Most of them are stressed out.
“We foresee maybe some groups of furniture, maybe two or three groupings of furniture, area rugs, we need to paint the walls a calming color maybe a light blue or something like that,” she said. “We can see bookshelves, we want to make it homey. A place where maybe they can relieve some stress.”
