A note from our Partner:

Hello Everyone, hope you’re having a great week. The Guyon Saunders Resource Center will be open 24 hours the next couple of nights, the Warming Station has activated twice this winter and has provided shelter from the frigid cold temperatures to approximately 50 – 60 individuals each night.

None of this would be possible without support from our community partners and our volunteers.

The Code Blue Warming Station will be activated at 5pm this evening (1/11/18). If you are interested in volunteering over the next couple of nights, please fill out the attached form. Thank you!!!
