(WTNH) – We want to mention a special moment in Hartford that happened a week and a half ago.

The new Stewart McKinney Emergency Shelter for Homeless Men opened in Hartford. Owned and operated by the Community Renewal Team.

The new shelter is in a former hotel in Hartford’s south end. The late Congressman Stewart B. McKinney made it his life work to protect the homeless.

Stewart is Capitol Report’s John McKinney’s dad.
