Out of tragedy, progress: North Shore's first year-round women's transitional shelter planned.
Connections for the Homeless and First United Methodist Church of Evanston have partnered to open "Daisy’s Place," a year-round transitional shelter for women.
Connections and First United were inspired to found the shelter after Tanuel Major, who was better known as 'Daisy,' was murdered on the steps of First United Methodist Church in November 2018.
The shelter will be the first on the North Shore dedicated to housing homeless women and will open this year.
The shelter will be located at First United Methodist Church, 516 Church St.
Watch the memorial service that was held for Tanuel Major last year, led by First Methodist Pastor Grace Imathiu, below.
