New Albany YMCA opens bathrooms to homeless

NEW ALBANY, Ind. — With many businesses closed due to Governor Eric Holcomb’s stay at home orders in effect, the homeless population has been lacking proper bathroom access.

The YMCA and non-profit Exit Zero in New Albany are stepping up to help the population.

On Monday, the YMCA will begin to allow the homeless to use its restrooms and showers.

The bathrooms will be open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from noon until 4 p.m. along with additional time on Tuesday afternoons.
