The Orange County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Jan. 24 a temporary cold weather shelter for the homeless in Fullerton, ending a six-month search.

Becht said the shelter will serve as an “immediate respite from cold weather” in addition to connecting the homeless to social services for permanent housing.
