A six-room safe house, operated specifically for abused and neglected seniors, is in danger of closing.
For now, Lita Formoso is thrilled to be in the facility.
“It’s like heaven compared to other shelters,” Formoso said Tuesday. She lost her house after a heart attack and wound up in a homeless shelter.
But now, the shelter’s key funding has dried up and it needs $200,000 by next month.
If the Volunteers of America-run shelter closes, its residents would likely have to go to homeless shelters or back to abusive situations.
