Arkansas Shelter Feels Effects Of Shutdown
A domestic violence shelter in Arkansas says it's feeling the strain of the partial federal government shutdown.
Board members with a shelter called Women & Children First told reporters on Wednesday that the impasse is hurting their organization and a number of other groups that receive federal funding.
Meanwhile, in Washington, politicians were working Wednesday to end the partial government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling.
Across the country, the shutdown has been squeezing programs that rely on federal funding. A number of donors have chipped in to keep those programs afloat. But those donations aren't enough to cover the federal funding tied up by the shutdown that began Oct. 1.
