This information is a week old, but it could be helpful if you know anybody seeking shelter over the next few days:
This a list of the centers that will open this evening. As we begin to experience freezing temps, please begin alerting your clients and guests about the overflow shelter beds available below. Also, please ensure your outreach teams are spreading the word to unsheltered individuals. Also, at the end of this email are opportunities to assist in the effort by supporting the resource needs of our shelters who go above and beyond every winter to ensure individuals stay warm and safe. Please consider sharing that with your networks.
