Cold snap pushes Green Bay homeless shelter to capacity

GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The deep freeze affecting Northeast Wisconsin is pushing some area homeless shelters to capacity.

At the daytime resource facility called the Micah Center, homeless people in Green Bay can get a break from the cold. George Caldwell says there's no doubt it's winter.

"It's brutal. It's like you get frostbite. You end up with pneumonia, bronchitis. You lose feeling in your fingers," said George Caldwell, Homeless.

Just down the hall, Kurt Loff is warming up.

"With the temperatures at night, even if you're wearing gloves, your face is exposed, and all that. it's not good. If you're out there freezing. You don't know where to go, just decided you want to stay on the streets, that's the worst thing people can do," said Kurt Loff, Homeless.
