ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque officials say an emergency winter shelter for the chronically homeless has closed after being open nightly for four months.

Mayor Richard Berry’s office says the shelter had daily average attendance of 255 people, an increase of about 10 percent.

Berry said in a statement Monday the winter shelter is an important part of the city’s plan to help homeless people, along with motel vouchers and connections to jobs.
