The Dove House has a new director and plans for getting the shelter reopened.
Pamela Cullum has been chosen as program director for the Dove House, a shelter for victims of domestic violence that closed more than a year ago.
“We’ve been very busy lately at the Dove House,” Cullum said.
The shelter is opening a thrift store in downtown Clinton at the longtime site of Joyce Burns’ Art and Frame Shop. Burns closed the doors to her shop recently and is now giving art lessons in Scotland.
The thrift store, Cullum said, is a step toward getting the shelter reopened. It will give the shelter, whose location is kept secret, a public spot.
Cullum said the store is always ready to accept donations of items or money. However, the store does not accept electronics. The store is aiming for a Sept. 23 grand opening.
