Diocese chancellor Matt Althoff said the new shelter could reduce the problems with vagrancy, panhandling and public drunkenness. One of the service gaps in the city is that some shelters, like the Salvation Army's warming center on Cliff Avenue, close during the day, and others such as the Good Shepherd Center on Main Avenue close at night.

The church aims to open the new shelter this fall, before cold weather sets in. But that's an aggressive schedule, Althoff said, even if they were to have the cash on hand for the renovation. The diocese will ask Catholics in the community to donate money for the project.
