Seattle homeless shelter told to leave

SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle homeless shelter is trying to figure out alternative sleeping arrangements for 75 men who will be displaced once the city takes over the building and puts a new homeless shelter there.

KOMO-TV reported Tuesday that Operation Nightwatch offers men a place to stay overnight in the lobby of a building in Seattle's international district.

The organization has received notice that it must stop using the building by May 10 to make way for the Navigation Center, the city's new 24/7 homeless shelter.

Rev. Rick Reynolds with Operation Nightwatch says he's been told the city will help them find a new spot, but he's not sure whether the group will be able to afford it.

The city's Human Services Department said in a statement it wants to ensure Operation Nightwatch can continue its services uninterrupted.
