Central Night Shelter (CNS) Director
Ana Bailie worked along side Katie and Sue the past 17 years as the Overnight Coordinator. Ana has stepped into the director role upon Katie's demise. Ana has also volunteered at the foot clinic the past 5 years. Ana stepped into the position because of the strong commitment of the other lead volunteers, and the consistent help from Mark Bashor. Ana is a registered nurse employed by the Atlanta Regional Commission working the the aging and disabled access services.
The Central Night Shelter opened on January 14, 1981. It was housed in the fourth floor gymnasium of Central Presbyterian Church but run by an ecumenical group of volunteers concerned about the growing problem of homelessness in Atlanta. Originally serving men, women, and children, Central Night Shelter has evolved into a winter night shelter for approximately 90-100 men, located jointly in the gymnasium of Central Presbyterian Church (capacity of 65-70) and the Church Hall of the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception (capacity of 25-30). The shelter is governed by an ecumenical group of volunteers, directed by Katie Bashor, a member of the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and supported by the staffs of Central and the Shrine.
