Ashland City Council bans children from homeless shelters
The Ashland City Council this week voted to ban children from city run homeless shelters.
Homeless citizens and advocates are disheartened by the banning of children from the shelters. The city however, feels they cannot offer adequate protection to children staying in the shelters and that is the reasoning behind the ban.
Several volunteers at city shelters say they will not turn away a child during the frigid winter months.
