WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- Agencies including the Salvation Army and several Williston-area churches have organized a program for area homeless people who don't have shelter from this winter's bitter cold.
It's dubbed Project Heat, and it involves 10 beds reserved at an area oil patch crew camp. The location isn't being disclosed.
The effort launched Monday will run through March.
Nearly 1,000 people are classified as homeless in Williams County, in the heart of the western oil patch, though a survey by the North Dakota Coalition for Homeless People finds that most have some form of shelter.
