Most of us know what it’s like to scramble to make ends meet. Some months just seem to have more days than we have money.

Between the dark days and Kodiak’s lower temperatures a lot of people are feeling the stretch to make ends meet. But, some Kodiak residents are just not able to get those end to reach each other and are having to choose between food and heat.

In addition to providing overnight housing, the Brother Francis Shelter also has grants to help people with emergency funds for fuel and electric bills

Monte Hawver is the executive director of the shelter. He told KMXT’s Maggie Wall that the shelter has had more requests for fuel aid the past several weeks than in previous years.
