Local Shelter Struggles in Tough Economy

The tough economy is leaving one area shelter with financial worries of their own.

Another Chance House helps homeless men in our area get back on their feet. The program offers "another chance" for men working on addictions or help with housing.

The organization operates on grants and donations from the community. But the home's manager says without extra support, more than 50 local men could be homeless once again by the end of the year.

"We want to keep our doors open. Because, to me, we are a true blessing to this community," said Bobby Nixon, the home's resident manager. "We are a true blessing to everybody that comes through our door and who is affiliated with our family. But we are fearful; we are fearful that we won't make it through the year."

Donations to the home go to daily housing expenses such as food, furniture and maintenance.
