Amber's Place receives $100k from Manchester aldermen


MANCHESTER — City aldermen voted Tuesday night to give $100,000 to Amber’s Place, an emergency shelter for those who have overdosed and been medically cleared by a doctor to stay while they seek treatment.

The money will come out of the city’s contingency fund.

The shelter, started by Kriss Blevens of Kriss Cosmetics, is a free service and relies on donations to stay open.

Because of the funding, Amber's Place will be able stay open beyond July.

Donations are still being sought, however.

The wish list includes laundry detergent, paper towels, coffee, powdered creamer, sugar and 12 oz. coffee cups.
