Northlands Rescue Mission Out of Room

The Northlands Rescue Mission is completely full and workers say they expect the trend to continue into the holiday season.

The Northlands Rescue Mission is completely full and workers say they expect the trend to continue into the holiday season.

Historically in the winter the shelter sees more homeless people staying for longer periods of time. The shelter currently is at capacity with nearly 130 people and workers started a waiting list over the past six weeks. As the holidays near Northlands fear they will soon have to start turning people away if numbers continue to rise and they hope to eventually find another location for people to stay. The mission has continually been at overflow capacity since early this summer with 10 people staying in what used to be a conference room.
