A St. Johnsbury, Vermont, committee has abandoned plans to establish an overnight warming shelter for homeless people this winter in the northeastern Vermont community.
Sue Cherry of the St. Johnsbury-based Community Restorative Justice Center says they're going to wait until next year.
She says there was no way to get a shelter up and running before the middle of March.
Cherry tells the Caledonian Record the momentum is there to get it going for next winter. She says organizers see a shelter as a way of meeting needs, serving the public and providing resources.
The committee is made up of members of a number of social service organizations in the region.
