Economic recovery is not moving fast enough for one homeless shelter in the east.

Officials at Greenville Community Shelters say need is up, at a time when funding is way down. The shelter offers different programs from overnight shelter, to transitional housing and long-term housing. In the short-term they need to solve a $55-hundred dollar monthly shortfall. A long term plan may be even trickier.

"We're not likely to rebound to the way things were in 2006-2007 and it may mean we'll have to do things differently and look for different partnerships and arrangements," said executive director Lynne James.

They met with stakeholders Thursday morning to discuss options.
