OYS Champions: Open Shelter in downtown Columbus


Each week Karen Brown and Bob Kendrick introduce you to regular folks in our community doing extraordinary things!

This week Karen meets with a man who has spent almost two decades running a drop in homeless shelter in downtown Columbus because he says it’s the best job he has ever had!

On this Veteran’s Day, Soloman Dean says that about 15 percent of the folks they help at the Open Shelter are Veterans and he directly connects with over 1000 homeless every month to help them get a hot meal, supplies, and the connection to services that they need to get off the streets.
