Winter Overnight Shelters

HELP Ministries Logo

On cold winter nights, everyone needs a warm place to sleep. Therefore CCU, in partnership with local churches, opens two winter walk-in shelters to increase our community's shelter capacity for the winter. These shelters typically are open each evening from December 1 through March 31. There are no program requirements for entry beyond being quiet and non-disruptive, and agreeing to abide by CDC guidelines due to the COVID-19 pandemic (wearing a mask and maintaining physical distance from other guests, staff and volunteers).
