ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) - An organization in Ashland is offering a "Clean Start" to homeless people.
Executive director Sheri Seagraves told The Independent (http://bit.ly/1aLMG6z ) that the ministry, which is supported by five Presbyterian churches in Boyd and Greenup counties, offers services unlike any other in the area.
Homeless people can come in, get showers, clean clothes, haircuts and even be assigned a mailbox so they have an address to use on job applications.
It took a while to get the word out after the facility opened last year, but Seagraves says the ministry now stays busy. She says they serve about 60 clients per week.
