Corpus Christi Shelters Running Out Of Room

CORPUS CHRISTI -- The Metro Ministries shelter has run of of room in one of its shelters, and is close to being out of space in its other one.

The mens shelter, Rustic House, has 16 beds and all of them are full. Rainbow House, the women and children's shelter, has 64 beds and is almost at capacity.

"This is a continuing upward trend that we are seeing in the summer months; a lot of it has to do with heat," said Executive Director Patty Clark. "It's serious when we're down to three open beds available.

Clark said there is an uptick in people seeking shelter every year, but usually not this early in the summer.

Those interested in shelter, Clark said, are encouraged to check in regularly for vacancies.
