GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Grand Junction has approved emergency funding to keep a homeless shelter open for several months.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1PQ4ZOP ) that the City Council on Wednesday approved Homeward-Bound’s request for more than $43,000.

The funding will keep the nonprofit’s doors open until it receives more funds from another source in the summer, such as about $125,000 from fees from a 40-unit apartment complex currently under construction.

Without the emergency funding, the shelter would have had to close in a couple weeks, putting clients on the street in the coldest part of the year.
