Columbia's homeless shelter, Hands Across the Street/The Columbia Dream Center at 291 South 4th Street, must move from its current location, because the Lancaster Mennonite Conference, which owns the building, plans to lease it to another tenant. The shelter will have to move in late March or early April, according to Pastor Dave Powers. Unfortunately, Columbia Borough claims it's unable to help. Powers recently reminded council, "Homeless people are people."
