ATLANTA (AP) - An Atlanta shelter for homeless families and children will close in January as its nonprofit managers struggle with funding.

Nicholas House runs a shelter near downtown Atlanta that helps up to 45 homeless children and parents nightly.

Board president Juliet Reising says the nonprofit hasn't been
able to raise funds to keep the LaVista Road shelter afloat.

The closing will eliminate transitional shelter space for up to 12 families representing 45 children and parents.

The nonprofit will relocate eight families into other Nicholas House programs or agencies and layoff seven employees.

Services at Nicholas House's other family homeless programs will continue.
