HOMELESS MEN TRANSFERRED TO SALVATION ARMY FOLLOWING SHELTER CLOSING

 CLEVELAND, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Fifty-two homeless men will have a place to sleep at night thanks to a special grant from Society Bank.
 The men will find nighttime shelter in The Salvation Army Harbor Light Complex beginning tonight, and will stay there for three months. New program costs will be met through Society Bank's support.
 The men had found shelter at a Cuyahoga County-funded "Project HEAT" site. The site was kept open by the county commissioners long after its initially-intended closing date so that the men would have a safe place to sleep until an alternative facility was found.
 Society Bank President and CEO, Henry L. Meyer III, commented: "Society Bank is pleased to be working with the county commissioners, the city of Cleveland and 'Project HEAT' to provide the funds which will enable The Salvation Army to now house, at the Army's Harbor Light Complex, these 52 men who need to be relocated.
 "'Project HEAT' provides a great service in addressing the issues of homelessness, and The Salvation Army's programs to help those in need are well-known worldwide."
 The Salvation Army's general secretary, Major William Carlson, commented: "We are pleased that The Salvation Army is able to help with the emergency situation faced by the 'Project HEAT' program. As a provider of sheltering services The Salvation Army Harbor Light Complex is keenly aware of the needs of homeless people and what it takes to render effective service. I am hopeful that their stay at Harbor Light, these next three months, will be very helpful to 'Project HEAT,' and to the homeless men they serve."
