Homeless Shelters Crowded As Temperatures Drop

by Sheila AshThe extreme cold weather is bringing more homeless people in Louisville into area shelters.Nina Mosely with Wayside Christian Mission says the shelter on Jefferson Street is over capacity."We do have a few families and what we are doing we are transferring women and families as quickly as possible to our transitional shelter which is at the former Holiday Inn at Second and Broadway," she says.Mosely says the shelters are operating under white flag conditions. That means they can make additional space in common areas for people when the temperature or wind chill is 35 degrees or below.She says they will also accept donations of items such as lip balm, hats and gloves.
