The level of overnight shelter available to the homeless in Columbia is expected to increase this winter season.

Room at the Inn Volunteer Coordinator Janet Schisser says a group of about 20 people have been planning since July to find a new location to house the homeless through the winter months.

Last week the Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church confirmed they will accept Missouri’s homeless to stay overnight starting in January.
