As cold temperatures force people indoors, some people have no place to go.
A Wexford County shelter that's been opening their doors to the less fortunate welcomed the community to an open house on Sunday.
Folks were able to tour The Beautiful Star, a women's shelter that opened in May of this year.
The open house was in recognition of Homeless Awareness Week.
New Hope Shelter in Cadillac started by serving men more than twenty years ago.
Over the next few years they expanded their services to include three family shelters.
Two years ago the shelter received a $100,000 donation and used that money to serve homeless women, and also women with children.
