LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Little Rock homeless shelters are packed full with men, women, and families needing a warm meal and a place to sleep as the temperatures dip into the 20s.
Anytime it's this cold, homeless shelters are extremely busy, and that was definitely the case Sunday night at the Compassion Center where staff members have already served 700 meals since morning.
"Ever since about midnight there's a lot of people starting to come in and it's been all day long. It's starting to fill up, said director William Holloway.
Holloway personally greets many of the 200 plus homeless people who will stay at his shelter Sunday night. Other than sex offenders and violent criminals, they'll take just about anybody here, and they expect at least 100 more to trickle in throughout the night.
"You just need a place to lie down, rest, eat and relax...rejuvenate the body I would say." he explained.
