(WTXL) - The Salvation Army in Georgia is seeing a rise in the number of people who are homeless.

Core Officer Lieutenant Rebecca-Sullivan says they usually see this around the holidays and when cold weather comes.

She thinks Hurricane Michael may also be to blame.

Sullivan says their shelter is not just for the homeless.

"We don't turn someone away because their home is destroyed, or their apartment is destroyed," she said. "We like to try and go ahead and make sure they have a bed to stay."

There is no limit to how many nights you can stay at the Salvation Army.
