HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- An emergency homeless shelter will open in Hutchinson Monday, thanks to a lot of help from volunteers and donors.

New Beginnings says it will open the NOEL Lodge on Monday afternoon. It will have 25 beds, with men's and women's dormitories and three family rooms. An open house for the public will be held Saturday.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/Y902aT ) the shelter was to open in February but was delayed after inspectors found problems with a firewall, requiring New Beginnings to raise another $25,000.

Four Hutchinson churches contributed thousands of dollars in materials and labor. Other churches and several contractors also offered donations or reduced labor.

Previously, Hutchinson didn't have an emergency homeless shelter. Instead, New Beginnings distributed hotel vouchers for one night at a time during extreme weather.
