BEMIDJI-The Wolfe Center, a project by the Nameless Coalition for the Homeless, opened its doors for the first time Monday evening.

The nighttime shelter is for chronic homeless inebriates, and is located at 522 America Ave. NW, the site of the former Headwaters Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Church. The building is able to house 16 people during the winter months, and on the first night the shelter had a sleeper.
