From the San Diego Union-Tribune:
A former motel that once had been seen as a blight in the neighborhood will be a new permanent home for 82 homeless San Diegans, including Lister Lane.
“This is like a dream,” said Lane, 61, in his first visit to Benson’s Place in the Otay Mesa/Nestor neighbor in South Bay on Wednesday. “It felt like home.”
Lane, who said he has some physical and mental issues, had been homeless for a couple of months before moving into Father Joe’s Village’s Paul Mirabile Center at the nonprofit’s downtown San Diego campus, where he has taken a vocational culinary class and gone through other programs.
