Bedford homeless shelter expanding its outreach

BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ7) Grace House in Bedford is implementing a new policy to help the homeless.

The shelter will open to all who are homeless when the temperature drops below 50 degrees. If you see the "mercy flag" flying out front, that's the signal to come in. Pastor Joshua Bell says they hope this will allow them to help more people.

Grace House did a trial run last week and their new policy has already seen success.
