CONCORD - It's the first extremely cold night of the winter, with lows approaching zero for the first time of the season.
So for some, the opening of a new shelter in town is going to be more than welcome.
But not everyone agrees.
A 60 bed homeless shelter is set to open Tuesday at St. Peter's Church, despite opposition from neighbors who have concerns about the homeless population congregating in the area.
The shelter, located within the church on North State Street is being run by The Friends Program, which also runs a family shelter and senior volunteer program.
During a visit to a homeless camp near the Merrimack River, several homeless individuals told NH1 News they expect the addition 60 beds to fill quickly.
The shelter will be open 7 days a week from 7pm-7am. Concord Police said they will be patrolling the area.
