Williamsburg homeless shelter stops accepting women to prevent sex in building

By  | 

WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT)- A Whitley County homeless shelter says it will no longer accept women because of what's been going on inside the building.

The Director of Emergency Christian Ministries says too many people have been having sex at the shelter.

Ten to 12 women were asked to leave and in some cases the shelter won't accept children either.

While the director calls the decision is bible based, others say it doesn't make much sense.

"I guess I'm a little old school, but the first people off the boat were the women and children," Williamsburg Mayor Roddy Harrison said.

Women are being asked to go to the female only KCEOC Shelter in Gray.

The director says, he wants to accept women again but needs to renovate the facility first.
