Emergency shelter available in Norton

NORTON – Fundraising for Lori’s Place was launched in December 2018 with a donation from Norton Correctional Facility inmates.

The emergency shelter room named for Lori Shields, who proposed its creation in 2018 but died before it could become a reality, is now available for people needing temporary shelter.

Shields had been the manager of The Haven, a home-away-from=home for families of prison inmates.
