This is a ministry of hospitality to provide a warm, cool safe place to sleep when the area shelters are filled to capacity.
IT IS PROVIDED ONLY IF THE OTHER SHELTERS AND OUR SHELTER PROGRAM BEDS ARE FULL.
It will be available on September 23, 2019 and runs until May 1, 2020 and going forward only if the other area shelters are filled to capacity.
That is our purpose. It is not used only as a last resort. It will not be available if there are shelter beds available.
We are open if it is raining, storming or over 90 degrees with humidity.
However, Families will be assisted 365 days out of the year either in our shelter/transitional beds if available or in overflow.
