Warming shelter to open in the falls

With a lack of affordable housing and rental units being converted to Airbnb's, the region is helping deal with a growing homelessness problem in Niagara Falls.

The region and Project Share will open an overnight warming shelter November 1st.

The shelter will operate out of St. Andrew's United Church on Morrison Street.

It will be able to accomodate up to 15 people ever night from 7 pm to 7am.
