For those that had nowhere to turn this Thanksgiving, the Capital City Rescue Mission in Albany offered a free sit-down meal. Around 1,500 people were served.

Director Perry Jones tells NewsChannel 13 homeless numbers are up, and people are struggling in the community.

The dinner started at noon Thursday and people were treated to turkey, and lots of sides.

Take-out meals were also provided, and a cafe-style get together was available for people to enjoy popcorn, cookies, coffee and games.
