America's Nicest Homeless Shelter

America's Nicest Homeless Shelter

Feb 3, 2007-- A space defined by its generosity, the Wellspring House near Boston is 350 years old -- and beautifully restored. "The floorboards are original, the fireplace is original, the central beams are original," says Nancy Schwoyer. "In some ways it is a bed and breakfast, isn't it? It's just that it's a bed and breakfast for homeless families." Schwoyer runs Wellspring -- easily America's nicest homeless shelter. Families who stay there are considered guests.
