The Gateway home in Morehead has a waiting list of homeless people wanting shelter from the cold.

From the comfort of a warm house, two women look out at the cold struggling to make sure memories of shivering to sleep don't come true again.

Marilyn and Michelle are two of 21 staying at this shelter, putting it at capacity.

There is also a waiting list of more than 20 wanting shelter. Officials say a typical stay can be from 1 month to 90 days.

That doesn't mean they'll ever turn people away, saying they will lay out a cot if all other alternatives are used up.

The shelter is need of funding to help accommodate everyone in need. If you would like to get involved visit gatehouseky.org or call (606)784-2668.
