Some Pembroke residents are without a warm place to stay and The Grind is looking for solutions. There are currently no homeless shelters in the area.
One local resident is currently sleeping outside at the Farmers Market on Lake Street in Pembroke. The individual declined to provide his name or be interviewed for a news story. Executive Director at The Grind, Jerry Novack, says they’ve been working with this person for roughly 3-years.
Novack says The Grind is currently working with two homeless people in the Pembroke area. He adds they’re actively looking for solutions and trying to identify warming or comfort stations to get them out of the cold.
