Town officials in Princess Anne are trying to reopen the only homeless shelter that was shut down after Hurricane Sandy hit the region.

At the time town officials said that water from the storm left the Wood Home with a lot of mold.

Garland Hayward, president of the Princes Anne Town Commission, told WBOC that he is trying to raise awareness about the homeless problem in the area.

The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development has plans that include $640-thousand in federal funding to rebuild the facility.

If state funding is approved officials say the shelter would have two floors, four unites and house more than a dozen people in need.
