La PORTE — Several months after opening, the La Porte PADS homeless shelter is temporarily closing its doors.

In a Facebook post Sunday, officials with the volunteer-led program announced that they would be closing the shelter, located inside the former Christ Church chapel at 802 Indiana Ave., for the season. The team decided to close due to a lack of visitors, with no one coming to stay in over a week.
