Project Renewal holding a community meeting on the Bowery tomorrow night

Flyers are up along the Bowery for a community meeting at Project Renewal tomorrow (Tuesday) night from 6-7 at the nonprofit's outpost at 333 Bowery between Second Street and Third Street.

The flyers state: "Do you have questions or concerns about Project Renewal or want more information about the programs and services offered at the shelter?"

The nonprofit was founded in 1967. Per their website:

Project Renewal ... helps homeless and low-income men and women who often have a drug addiction, mental illness or both by providing everything they need to reclaim their lives with renewed health, homes, and jobs.

Project Renewal's Kenton Hall on Third Street between Second Avenue and the Bowery is "home to 100 men on methadone maintenance, receiving comprehensive health, support, and housing services." It opened in 1991.

Last fall, local elected officials along with Project Renewal leaders took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new community garden outside the Third Street shelter. Officials hope that the new space will bring about a bond between the shelter and local community.

Maybe they'll advertise some spring work days in the garden - or community days - or something. Last time I looked, the "garden" needed some help. Send in one of those corporate groups on a do-gooder day!!
