ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Reverend Larry Rice will hold a press conference Saturday to announce the opening of Integrity Village, a new tent city for the homeless.
Rice says the New Life Evangelistic Center will have staff on the premises while members are present around the clock.
There are also plans for a security force to enforce no trespassing, no drinking, no weapons and no drugs.
The NLEC says the village is possible by following St. Louis building codes. These codes allow for up to 50 small tents on the property for ninety days.
