Marie Atkins Shelter for the Poor - Driving Instructions

The Poor Relief Department of the parishes of Kingston and St. Andrew is a welfare agency of the Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation.

We provide breakfast feeding support every last Saturday of the month, at 8:30AM.
All Friendly lodge members are encouraged to attend; it really adds a special dimension to the event. 

The Center is located at 65 Hanover Street.
It is on the left, going up Hanover street; past the first road on the left and it is the next entrance on the left.

The entrance is a faded blue and red wall, with a small entrance.
There is parking  available inside for at least 10 cars.

There are 2 easy ways to get there.
