Athens Homeless Prepare for Winter Months

By Nicole Castrellon

As the temperatures begin to drop, not everyone in the Athens area will be warm. Shelters and city officials are preparing for the colder temperatures and are trying to prepare the Athens area homeless as well. However not every homeless person wants to utilize the resources that a shelter provides. ACC officials are doing what they can to try and get those individuals out of the cold and into a safe place.
