Valley Women Left Out in the Cold

Posted: Updated:

  Women are winding up out in the cold, right here in the Valley.

  The problem is overcrowding and too many men at the Grand Forks', Northlands Rescue Mission.

  The Director, Dave Sena says 85-percent of their population is men. He says it can be very intimidating for women. So, they're taking a look at opening a separate shelter for women only.

  Women like Tiffany Moe, who spent last night in her car outside the Mission, until it ran out of gas. Then, she went inside early this morning to warm up.

Reporter: "Would you like it if there was a separate women's shelter?"

Tiffany Moe, G.F. Mission: "I think it's needed. I'd like it."

Reporter: "Are you intimidated by all the men?"

Moe: "Yeah, very much so."

 

 Moe wouldn't talk about her circumstances, but says she just arrived in town and was going job hunting today.

  The Mission's Director, Dave Sena says they're currently talking to other service providers to figure out how big the problem is… and how much it would cost to open a separate shelter for women.
