Wheeler Mission, the city’s largest homeless shelter, is having budget trouble because of the increased demand for its services. In 1997, the shelter took in an average of 49 per night, but now 300 or more stay on a nightly basis. But 2007 donations to the mission were $250,000 short of its goal. It is estimated that there are approximately 2,061 homeless people in Marion County.
