SF Planning Commission Unanimously Approves New Homeless Shelter

SF Planning Commission Unanimously Approves New Homeless Shelter

In a unanimous vote, the Sioux Falls Planning Commission approved plans for a new homeless shelter in the Whittier neighborhood tonight.

The Sioux Falls Catholic Diocese unveiled plans for the Bishop Dudley Hospitality House last month in an effort to provide a shelter for the homeless population at night and provide services to them during the day.

"We would hope that as Disciples of Christ that they would be made to feel welcome to instead of roaming the streets aimlessly, ill productively and frankly destructively to their own selves and to other things they'd find safe haven,” Matt Althoff with the Sioux Falls Catholic Diocese said.

Business owners near the proposed facility had opposed the plan because they feared the shelter would increase problems with homeless transients in the neighborhood.
