The Valley Breeze: City's homeless left without shower access


By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor

PAWTUCKET - Imagine, says Adrienne Marchetti, not having access to daily showers during the hottest and most humid days of summer.

That's what the city's homeless residents now face after House of Hope's ACCESS-RI program, which meets homeless needs on a walk-in basis, permanently closed its doors at 185 Dexter St. last Friday, June 28.

“It's a sad situation,” said Marchetti, head of the Pawtucket Soup Kitchen, which feeds many of these same homeless men and women on a daily basis. “Most people don't give a crap, they say they deserve what they get, but this is horrible. Imagine being them.”
