Dignity Harbor - St. Louis

Just north of the Landing and east of the Artica site is an open field between the Cottonbelt Building and the flood wall. It is the site of Dignity Harbor. Shelly Finn, an old friend and St. Louis Police Officer on leave is the main organizing force behind the project. There are homeless folks who don't quite fit into some available programs and this place is for them. I plan to be doing some work in the next few weeks to make the camp a bit safer and healthier than it might be otherwise. My first project is to use donated pallets and scrap closed cell foam insulation to get campers' bunks of the ground. Other projects will follow as materials become available.
