Homeless Shelter Plan Remains Elusive

With a seemingly legitimate winter up and running, officials remain undecided on how many homeless people to plan for when opening day shelters across the county. Estimates vary from 125 to several hundred, a tough-to-nail-down number that also needs to mesh with staffing requirements. The Unitarian Society, which administers pop-up shelters at various churches during cold snaps and downpours, has reported it can fill that staffing void for an estimated $60,000-$75,000, accounting for daytime shelter for 25 storm days at three locations. County administrators hope to team up with city counterparts to cover the expense.
