WINTER WARMING CENTER CLOSED

Posted 05/14/2020 by Julia Frevert

Thank you for signing up to provide a meal for the Winter Warming “low barrier” Shelter. The Salvation Army has notified us today that effective immediately, the low barrier shelter is closed. Due to the decrease in attendance, the male clients are now housed at Helping Hands and the female clients are housed in permanent housing and at Contact Ministries. Because of this change, you will NOT need to provide a meal on your assigned evening. We truly appreciate your compassion in helping our residents who are experiencing homelessness. Especially during this health crisis, your gift of kindness, generosity, and time is truly appreciated.
