The Las Vegas valley's only shelter for homeless families 
closed its doors Wednesday, two weeks earlier than planned.

The final 18 residents of MASH Village's transitional living
program, which housed both families and older women while
providing them job training and other services, were moved to
low-rent apartments or other shelters.

The program stopped accepting new residents last month.

Only the Crisis Intervention Center, a one-stop clearinghouse of
social services for the homeless, remains open at the once
sprawling complex near downtown Las Vegas.

At its peak, officials said the village's Transitional Living
Center housed 225 people and the Crisis Intervention Center
helped from 3,000 to 5,000 people a month.
