Rapid City Homeless Shelter Overfull, Women And Children Sleeping On Floor
The Cornerstone Rescue mission is running overcapacity in Rapid City. The mission provides about 400 meals per day and nightly shelter for about 150 homeless people in western South Dakota.
Cornerstone officials say on some nights as many as 30 women and children are sleeping on the floor in the basement because the mission has no more room to house those in need.
SDPB’s Charles Michael Ray sat down with the Cornerstone Rescue Mission Executive Director Lysa Allison and the mission’s board president Chad Carpenter.
