Doing something at the street level is what it may take to make a difference. The Lima Rotary Club unveiling its efforts to end homelessness in the Lima area.

The Rotary Club has teamed up with West Ohio Community Action Partnership and other organizations to create a centralized service number for anyone wanting to get off the streets. Rotarians have been spending two days a month from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. trying to connect with people to let them know about services available to them. They say the time on the streets has opened their eyes to the needs of the homeless.

Russ Thomas says he's currently working with other agencies to find the best use for a recent house donation to Family Promise. He believes it's suited for emergency housing for the homeless.
