Community Kitchen opens emergency shelter

Posted: Updated:

The frigid temperatures in the Tennessee Valley have those down on their luck desperately searching for a warm place to sleep.

The Community Kitchen will open its doors to the homeless tonight, though, it was a struggle to do so.          

The mayor's office says the Homeless Coalition failed to request funding on time.

Stephen Wright with the coalition tells Channel 3, they've been working non-stop to get emergency funding.

The case is to be decided by City Council in the coming weeks.
