Thanks to the generosity of the Greater Saratoga Springs community, Shelters of Saratoga (SOS) will begin a much needed exterior improvement to the aging shelters on Walworth Street. The driveway and parking area will be replaced in Spring 2020 and the handicap ramp and front porch at 14 Walworth Street will be replaced. These improvements are part of an overall capital improvement plan which will provide much needed upgrades to both shelters. These projects will begin in 2020 and are expected to be completed in 2021.

WILL YOU PLEASE HELP US RAISE A TOTAL OF $200,000?
If you’ve ever been to our shelters at 14 and 20 Walworth Street near downtown Saratoga Springs, you know that those spaces are in various states of wear. Our primary concern is the state of our exterior structures, as the driveway and parking area that services both shelters and our wood handicap ramp and front porch of 14 Walworth Street need rehabilitation. These improvements will greatly enhance accessibility for participants, emergency service providers, volunteers, and the community as a whole. At the same time, it will make our property more inviting and more conducive to a productive, positive environment. This project not only improves accessibility for our clients but help us become better neighbors. This project is just the start of big plans we have to substantially renovate and improve both shelters. Your support of this phase of the project helps us secure grant funding for the proposed interior renovations slated for Spring 2020.
We still need YOUR help to launch the first phase of this project!
Thank you to our generous funders who helped us build a workforce development center and expanded food storage and walk-in freezer.
