MONROE, NC - The Union County Community Shelter in Monroe won’t turn anyone away this weekend.
"It's great because I know a lot of people out there are suffering,” said Allyson Fernandez, shelter resident.
The shelter has 28 beds. 20 for men and eight for women.
Residents are typically part of a 90 day program to reach self-sufficiency. When it’s 40 degrees or below, no one is turned away.
"This is a great place to come to start the rebuilding process or just rest your head for a night,” said shelter resident Brian Fowler.
The shelter relies on donations. If you’re interested in getting involved, click here.
