DILWORTH—More help is coming as leaders say they're on track to finding a permanent shelter solution this winter.

Churches United is using the Dilworth Community Center for overflow as of Saturday night.

On average, 35 people have been staying there each night, but at the end of January, the building has to go back to hosting events.

Pastor Sue Koesterman tells us a different location in Moorhead will likely be used next month and possibly through the next winter season.

Every shelter right now is at capacity in the metro.

"We have about 275 individuals who are on the unsheltered list and waiting for shelter in the community," Pastor Sue Koesterman, Churches United.

She cannot say exactly where this potential overflow shelter will be until they finalize a deal.
