Homeless Face Challenges During Cold Weather

Staying warm during the cold winter months can be a tough task especially if you're a male and homeless in Pitt County.

The only homeless shelter in Pitt County is the Greenville Community Shelters and they have no more beds available for men.

The shelter director says they have 50 beds available and with the economy still bad and the cold temperatures, sometimes they have to turn people away.

If they don't have beds they usually get help from the Salvation Army, Social Services, or churches.

Although the men's side is full the woman's side is about 85 percent.
