Homeless to home for Thanksgiving

SALEM — For the first time since 2009, Diana Dinapoli has a home at Thanksgiving. She plans to make full use of it today.

Brimming with gratitude, the former teacher’s aide, 63, will be cooking up a storm for a dozen neighbors new and old. The new ones share a kitchen and bathrooms with her in supportive Seeds of Hope Housing , offered through Lifebridge , a Salem nonprofit. The rest reside where she spent last Thanksgiving: next door in Lifebridge’s shelter for homeless men and women.
