EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Lane County housing program that helps homeless families is looking for a way to get people through winter after a recent cold snap burned through their entire budget.

The Register-Guard reports (http://is.gd/Zs9FBF ) that Catholic Community Services of Lane County uses grant funds from Lane County Human Services to put homeless families in motels when temperatures drop below freezing.

This year, the nonprofit received $8,125 for the housing vouchers, all of which was used when the program put up 34 adults and 41 children during last month’s five-night cold snap.

Executive Director Tom Mulhern says the organization met last week with Lane County Human Services and other housing groups to find alternative housing options for families.
