Lewis House closes in government shutdown
The effects of the state government shutdown have been, for the most part, subtle here in Hastings. But legislative gridlock has forced at least one local organization to close its doors temporarily.
The Lewis House in Hastings is part of 360 Communities and offers a safe haven for women and children who experience domestic violence. The facility provides immediate needs as well as emotional support, resources and legal advocacy to more than 900 women and children each year.
