Mchenry Council Oks Pioneer Center's 24/7 Homeless Shelter Plan

The McHenry City Council has voted to allow Pioneer Center and The Chapel to move forward with plans for a full-time fixed-site homeless shelter. The shelter would be at 1809 S. Route 31, near Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital and Pioneer Center’s main offices. The Chapel owns the building and will complete a build-out on a 6,000-square-foot portion of the building for Pioneer Center’s use. The goal is to open the center within the next year, according to city documents. The plan was met with some resistance from 2nd Ward Alderman Andrew Glab, who questioned what the benefit was to the city. “I have heard from several people about the headaches and problems they have had in Woodstock,” Glab said.
