SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A downtown Salt Lake City day shelter for the homeless is staying open after all.
The Bishop Weigand Center day shelter was scheduled to close this week because the organization that runs it didn't have enough money.
Catholic Community Services says the center was down to offering only the most basic services, but the city and Salt Lake County each contributed $100,000 to keep the Weigand Center open another year.
The center gives homeless people a place during the day to avoid the heat in the summer or frigid temperatures in winter. Showers and laundry facilities are available also available at the center, which hopes to expand the services it offers.
