A cold-weather shelter for the homeless is expected to be up and running later this month.
Samaritan House, a local nonprofit group, has received approval from the city to set up a homeless shelter in the old 2G’s bar building at 1509 Seventh St., next to McDonald’s restaurant.
The owners, Vince and Vicki Howell, are donating the space rent-free for the first year. Samaritan House hopes to open the shelter starting Nov. 21. Its hours will be 6 p.m. to 7 a.m.
