Estimated 300 homeless expected in Seattle Monday nighton October 10, 2011 @ 10:46 am (Updated: 12:27 pm - 10/10/11 )
SHARE (Seattle Housing and Resource Effort) and WHEEL (Women's Housing, Equality and Enhancement League) have been forced to shut the doors of their shelters due to lack of funds.
SHARE/WHEEL board member Jarvis Carpucion told KING 5 15 of their indoor shelters will close Monday night.
"We're not sure what's going to happen. We need a stable source of funding," Carpucion said.
Starting at 7 p.m. on Monday, homeless advocates will spend the night in an alley off of Stewart Street in downtown Seattle to raise awareness for the need for homeless shelters.
Monday is also World Homeless Day.
