It’s a first for Prineville; a homeless shelter just opened this week. A house next to the Crook County Sheriff's Office was converted from a storage place to a five bed shelter for men. Cook County Commissioner Ken Fahlgren says times are tough and Prineville really needed a shelter. “I think what we're seeing is there are different faces of homelessness. There are people who've never had a need in their life and have come to a point where they don't have a job or they don't have a place to be and maybe families aren't here to help them. They're just the eyes and the ears of those in our community who we know we need to help and we do take the time to do that." While the County took the lead role, the new shelter was also group effort from local contractors, churches and other volunteers.  In the end it only cost the County a few thousand dollars. Fahlgren calls the project a success and says if the need continues they'll consider opening another local shelter.
