About 15 tents can be seen on the front lawn outside the Friends In Crisis homeless shelter on Sprott Street in downtown Killeen.

The space is also occupied by a barbecue grill, electric fans, a microwave and sometimes cages with animals inside. The electronics are powered by extension cords connected to the shelter’s outdoor outlets.
