Northern Ariz. shelter to end nighttime services, temporarily

April 25, 2013

A homeless shelter in Flagstaff will suspend overnight services at the end of May. Flagstaff Shelter Services will stop offering the homeless a place to stay about a month later than usual thanks to a grant that allows them to operate longer.

The shelter will remain open during the day so people can do things like take a shower or use a computer. Overnight assistance will resume in the fall. The Arizona Daily Sun reports limited funds prevent the shelter from providing year-round nighttime services.
