SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls homeless shelter is seeking to increase accountability for its guests.

The Argus Leader (https://bit.ly/22PWEgC ) reports the Bishop Dudley Hospitality House next month will begin a pay-for-stay program for employed residents and implement new requirements designed to encourage unemployed guests to find work and housing.

Those without a job will now be required to help with assigned chores and meet with staff regularly to create a plan for transitioning to employment or housing.

Executive Director Chad Campbell says the goal is to help transition people transition “back out in the community.”

Bishop Dudley served more than 1,500 people last year and is on pace to serve more than 2,200 in 2016.
