Coming soon: Guardian Angels set to open county's only homeless shelter
Denny Farrell was well aware of the homeless population in Washington County.
So when three Guardian Angels Catholic Church members who hoped to bring a shelter to the church approached Farrell - the parish administrator and longtime volunteer with Twin Cities-based homeless organizations - he was all ears.
"I totally understood what was happening," he said.
The effort got immediate traction at the church and the surrounding faith community.
