Athens homeless shelter denied
(WOUB) - Bad news for Good Works.

It's been turned down by the the Athens Zoning Board of Appeals.

The Board voted last night to deny Good Works' request to use the house located at 93-95 Central Avenue as a shelter for homeless families.

Good Works Incorporated says it's the only shelter for the rural homeless in nine counties in southeast Ohio.
