Harriett’s House opening drop-in center tomorrow with changes

CAMBRIDGE, Md.-  Harriett’s House drop- in center in Cambridge will be reopening tomorrow at 10 a.m.

Harriett’s House focuses on making resources available for women in need, with a focus on women who have been trafficked or sexually exploited.

Harriett’s House had to close at the end of March because they were not deemed an essential business.

The Executive Director said while they were closed, they grew their client base and they realized the need was still there, especially when it comes to the homeless community.

“I find that that’s one of the most important needs in our community, a place that’s safe for people to go out of the weather when they are homeless. So, I think that we will see that too,” Julie Crain, Executive Director of Harriett’s House, said.

For now, Harriett’s House will only be open on Tuesday’s and Friday’s from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The drop in center has new restrictions in place like requiring face coverings in the building, having people knock before entering , and only serving two clients at a time.

We are told they are in need of donations and volunteers.

You can visit their website at harriettshouse.org to find more information.
