(Updated 11/12/2019)
When there is extreme weather or cold (overnight temperature is forecast to be 20 degrees or below including windchill) it is referred to as an "extreme weather night."
 
On extreme weather nights, all families and single women experiencing homelessness and in need of a safe place to sleep are welcome to use The Salvation Army's (630 East Washington Avenue) emergency family shelter and single women's shelter despite usual capacity and shelter night limits.
On extreme weather nights, all single men experiencing homelessness and in need of a safe place to sleep are welcome to use the Grace Men's Drop In Shelter (116 West Washington Avenue) despite usual capacity and shelter night limits.
Extreme weather nights count towards an individual's 90 day shelter stay. However, once an individual meets their 90 day limit, they can continue to access shelter on extreme weather nights.
Please note: Even on extreme weather nights, behavioral issues may result in being asked to leave shelter that night or a temporary suspension. Outstanding, temporary suspension for violent/threatening behavior still stand on extreme weather nights.
