GLOVERVILLE, S.C.- The Mt. Salem Outreach Ministries homeless shelter in Gloverville is in danger of closing due to a lack of community support.

Mt. Salem’s Men’s shelter has more than 1800 beds slept since January. That’s already 600 more than last year but come December, those people needing a place to sleep might not find one.

Ministry Director, Rev. Rob Lane says having a bed to sleep in and a meal to eat can be the difference that keeps the homeless from crime.

Lane adds, “If men don’t have a place to go at night. Where do they want to go? In the woods, people’s backyards. They’re gonna get desperate, and when people get desperate they do terrible things.”
