GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - It appears the future of a daytime homeless shelter in Green Bay is up in the air.

Jane Jordan with Lutheran Social Services tells FOX 11 that a lease was never signed for a daytime resource center for the homeless in the basement of the Wisconsin Jobs Center building. That building is located on Cherry Street.

Lutheran Social Services has been working with a homeless task force, called Project H.O.P.E., since last December to look at Green Bay's homelessness issue.

The future of a daytime homeless resource center in Green Bay is not as certain as it seemed earlier this week.

Alderman Mark Steuer earlier this week had said that a lease was in place, and the daytime resource center could open in that location by October.

On Monday, Green Bay’s Plan Commission recommended raising the capacity at St. John the Evangelist Homeless Shelter. Committee members said the progress on a daytime shelter was one of the reasons for supporting the increased capacity.
