Possible expansion in the works for local women's shelter


EAU CLAIRE - A women's shelter in Eau Claire is looking to expand.

Ruth House, which is run by the Hope Gospel Mission, is approved for twelve residents. The city planning commission will hear its request Monday night to expand that to eighteen.

The facility's director says the number of residents is on the rise, in part due to the economy. Ruth House provides housing and treatment to single women.
