Yakima homeless turned away in the snow

Yakima homeless turned away in the snow
YAKIMA -- Yakima's homeless problem has only become a bigger issue since the snow storm

Shelters and soup kitchens in the area tell us they're turning away dozens of people each night. Food trucks can't drive because of slick streets and some volunteers are snowed in.

Shelter directors tell us the need is climbing.

"We had 90 families show up for help this week," says Sunrise Outreach Director Dave Hanson. "Fortunately, we have had enough in storage this week, but we're hoping the weather gives us a little bit of a break next week."

Homeless shelters all over the Valley are at capacity. Shelter directors urge everyone to volunteer if they can.
