A Suffolk Virginia Christain Organization "Coalition Against Poverty" Offers Shelter to the Homeless During the Cold Winter, Unless You Are a Registered Sex Offender!

 
Dear Victoria Bourne of the Virginian Pilot, the Coalition Against Poverty and it's partners, 

I just read the recent Virginian Pilot article Suffolk group partners with churches to help homeless http://hamptonroads.com/2015/01/suffolk-group-partners-churches-help-homeless 

So is it my understanding (per the article) if any homeless Virginian looking for shelter is listed on the Virginia State Police Sex Offender Registry they will be turned away by the Coalition Against Poverty denying them a warm place to sleep for a few hours simply because of a conviction from 5, 10, 15, 20 years ago? 

But you don't turn away anyone convicted of any other crime like murder, drugs, robbery, assault, battery, burglary, larceny, DUI, domestic violence or animal abuse?
