Record Occupants at Northlands Rescue Mission

The Northlands Rescue Mission is experiencing its highest number of occupants on record, mainly due to the frigid temps. That coupled with the lack of employment opportunities is making the waiting list longer than usual.

The Northlands Rescue Mission is experiencing its highest number of occupants on record, mainly due to the frigid temps. That coupled with the lack of employment opportunities is making the waiting list longer than usual.

The mission's capacity is capped at 120 but for the past few weeks more than 130 people have been checking in. Conferences rooms, the dining room and lobby are all overflow areas, but once those fill up the mission will have to turn people away. Melanie Orlins has more.

If you'd like to help the mission you can go to their website, http://www.nrmission.com/for more information.
