Archdiocese shares building space to help the homeless in Omaha

Up to 120 homeless men, women and children in Omaha continue to have a place to sleep, warm meals and access to social service programs thanks to an agreement between St. Mary Parish and the Stephen Center in south Omaha.

The Stephen Center's former emergency shelter is being demolished and replaced at the same location by an $8.5 million facility, so a temporary shelter opened July 19 about eight blocks away in the former school building on the St. Mary campus.
