Now, I understand that if you are online reading this you probably are not freezing to death. I ask that you keep this information in mind in case you see someone on the streets who probably does not know about this. Consider helping them get somewhere they can warm up – you might save a life. Many homeless shelters in the city do not allow clients to stay in the building during the day, forcing them out onto the cold streets.

You can get more information about this program, including the hours of locations, by calling 211 from a land line phone and 800-427-4626 from a cell phone.
