ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Homeless advocate, Reverend Larry Rice, claims the city's new homeless shelter is not helping all of the homeless.

The Biddle Housing Opportunities Center on Tucker Boulevard opened last week. It offers overnight beds for up to 125 men.

But Rice says his New Life Evangelistic Center has even more homeless women and children coming to him for help. Rice also says St. Louis city's ten-year-plan to end homelessness is now in its eleventh year and was not successful.

Rice plans a news conference later Wednesday to talk more about his services versus the city's.
