LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The back-and-forth weather pattern has had an effect on East Texas shelters that help the homeless, and those who need a warm meal and a warm place to stay.While the warm spell is welcomed, it does not diminish the use of resources that are spent in the cold time of need. The recent frigid spell had many East Texas shelters like the Hiway 80 Rescue Mission overloaded, housing and feeding over and above capacity.
LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Hiway 80 Rescue Mission is seeing more people in need of help this Thanksgiving season. There are higher numbers of the newly desperate showing up at the doors of the Mission for food, clothing and shelter.
KLTV was on site to capture our Veteran’s Day celebration at the Mission. In spite of the cold weather, we hosted many veterans and members of the community for this special day to celebrate their service to our country.

The cheap motel rooms on Marshall Avenue don’t have cameras, either. For that matter, in the middle class homes and fine houses of the wealthy what goes on behind closed doors may be talked about but is rarely seen.
