How to get my ferals to use their shelters

I have some cold weather shelters for my ferals but i can't seem to get them to use them. Most of the cats run when I see them. How do I convince them to use them? The cats that don't run from us will not tolerate being picked up so I can't just physically place them in the shelter until they get the message. I tried feeding them in the shelters but they are afraid of small spaces. They only go in far enough to eat and then still sleep in the ground. Any suggestions?

Just give them time, and put treats in the shelters. They might feel safer if there's two exits in the shelter.
