Stewpot will reopen The Opportunity Center Monday

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Thanks to two local foundations, Stewpot will reopen The Opportunity Center Monday!

The center will open for the next six months to cover the winter season. The day shelter for the homeless will be open seven days a week from 6 a.m. until 4p.m.

The opportunity center was originally designed to serve about 80 homeless or needy people a day. But it averaged 185 people daily during the winter season. The center will provide a mail drop and telephones to contact and be contacted by potential employers.

Patrons can also use the restrooms, showers, washers and dryers.
