FARGO (AP) — Overflow homeless shelter occupancy was up 65 percent this past winter in the Fargo-Moorhead area, prompting shelter directors and volunteers to look for a more permanent solution to the problem.
A mild start to the winter has helped Grand Forks’ Northlands Rescue Mission save on its heating bill, but the homeless shelter near downtown is busier, and more crowded, than in last year’s much colder winter.
“It’s actually gone up,” Executive Director David Sena said Friday. “Right now, the last couple of nights we’ve averaged seven people in our dining room sleeping on mattresses because we’re on overflow.”
