Less demand forecast for winter homeless shelterOctober 16, 2013
By The Associated Press
BLOOMINGTON — New housing designed to serve chronically homeless people is expected to reduce demand for a winter shelter in Bloomington.
Interfaith Winter Shelter board president David Schilling tells The Herald-Times that the shelter drew 55 to 60 guests per night last year. He expects the number to fall this year now that a 25-unit apartment complex and other sites in Monroe and Morgan counties have opened.
The winter shelter will open Nov. 1. Schilling says the shelter board will limit its capacity to 50 people per night.
The shelter is open seven nights a week through March 31. It rotates among four churches.
Volunteers are still being sought to help.
