ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- Matt Dimon is homeless. Right now, he lives and works at the St. Francis House homeless shelter in St. Augustine.
He knows what it's like to be cold on the streets.
"The elements are the worst ... the cold, even the heat in the summer time. Most people don't have a clue what it's like," Dimon noted.
The St. Francis House is the only emergency homeless shelter in St. Johns County.
And the past two nights, "We had more people than we had beds, even in our overflow," Executive Director Judy Dembowski explained.
She told her staff Tuesday night not to turn away anyone. "I said, 'If people have to sit up, have people sit up. Squeeze them in. It's going to be cold out there and there aren't any other indoor options tonight."
