Churches United has had 2333 stays in overflow housing since November. Nearly 17-hundred by men. 643 by women. And 11 stays by families.

The most in one night, 44. That's 26 more than the one night high, all of last year.

The shelter is warning homeless, overflow is over. With warm weather, it can't go above capacity as it has in the past. Churches United will still take families with children in overflow.
