LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The early dip in temperatures this season forced Catholic Charities to open its shelter doors ahead of schedule.

The southern Nevada nonprofit charity said it made about 180 additional inclement weather shelter beds available to homeless men beginning Nov. 9.

Catholic Charities noted a grant allowed for the additional inclement weather beds to be used from Nov. 19 through March, 2013.

The shelter, which is located at 1511 Las Vegas Boulevard South, is available from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. daily.

The organization says beds, clothing, blankets, showers and case management are provided on site.

About 160 beds are already available at the shelter, which are funded by Clark County.
