New homeless shelter opens in Eau Claire

(WEAU) -Homeless in Eau Claire now have a new place to spend the night.

The Sojourner House held its opening celebration Friday. The shelter, which is located at 618 South Barstow, will provide a place for homeless men and women to stay and will offer programs to help get them back on their feet.

Bishop William Callahan with the Eau Claire Diocese says "This is an opportunity for us to stop and see that we actually are taking this seriously, and looking at the opportunities that are available to us to take care of the poor among us."
