Dozens of women and children in need are forced to sleep on the floor, an Omaha shelter says.

There are more than 800 beds at the Open Door Mission, but that's not been enough to meet the need.

Last night, 66 people slept on the floor.

With the holidays and winter cold still on the way, charity leaders are hoping for help.
