WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- The city of Williston has formally recognized a company that provided beds at its crew camp for a temporary emergency homeless shelter.
Officials didn't disclose the location of the shelter earlier for security reasons. The effort dubbed Project Heat ended at the close of March. Mayor Ward Koeser and city commissioners recently thanked Aries Systems Building for providing 10 beds at its crew camp for 50 nights.
The Salvation Army and several Williston-area churches organized the program in February, with the help of about three dozen volunteers. Salvation Army Capt. Joshua Stansbury says officials hope to start it up again in November.
