MOORHEAD—With life-threatening temperatures outside, emergency help is now available for the homeless.

Governor Mark Dayton signed a declaration opening a shelter Wednesday night at the Armory in Moorhead.

It has 40 beds and will be open until next Thursday.

With this temporary shelter open and others packed to capacity, Churches United is looking for volunteers.

Those without a home say they're thankful for a warm place to rest their head.

"It is extremely cold outside and when you ain't go nowhere to go and nobody to turn to you need to have some type of resources," said Joe Bell, Homeless.

Right now, only men can stay at the shelter since no women volunteers have come forward.
