WHEELING, WV (AP) — Lawmakers studying children and poverty are planning to hear from the public this week on housing issues.

Legislators will be convening interim meetings in Wheeling from Wednesday through Friday.

The Senate Select Committee on Children and Poverty is meeting from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at Catholic Charities West Virginia. It's hosted by Chairman John Unger of Berkeley County and two Northern Panhandle senators, Rocky Fitzsimmons of Ohio County and Jack Yost of Brooke County.

People with housing challenges and the providers who serve them will get the opportunity to educate legislators on the current situation.

Catholic Charities says many people are struggling with skyrocketing rent costs due to the growth of the region's gas drilling industry and the influx of workers. Others are facing foreclosure and homelessness.
