CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s capital city has set up an emergency homeless shelter, but it won’t open in time for the subzero weather.

A church activity center, first available last winter in Concord, will once again be about to house people, but it isn’t scheduled to open until January. And it’s seeking volunteers to help run it.

The Friends Program, a nonprofit, said Thursday it agreed to manage the shelter and organize volunteers. It needs about 10 volunteers a day.

It had appeared that the space at St. Peter’s Church wouldn’t be available this year. The church is up for sale, and the Concord Monitor reports there are two potential buyers.

The temperature at about 9 a.m. Friday in Concord was 1 degree, with a wind chill of 17-below.
