Des Moines receives grant to combat homelessness

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Des Moines and the YMCA have received a federal grant to combat homelessness in the city.

The $243,000 grant is part of a homelessness prevention grant the federal government will distribute across the country.

The grant for Des Moines will help support the YMCA of Greater Des Moines' "Shelter Plus Care Program".

The program helps direct the homeless to housing and longer-term support services designed to help them become self reliant.
