LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -The cold weather hasn’t even set in yet, and one East Texas rescue mission is already full with more coming in every day.

Workers at the Hiway 80 Rescue Mission say that they are over capacity and sleeping needy people on their floors.

The House of Hope women's shelter is also at capacity.

With winter coming, those who don't have heated homes are expected to stay at the shelter as well.

Monetary donations along with food and clothing are needed.
