Cold Night Shelter

 

When the temperature drops to 45 degrees or below we convert our community kitchen in to a Cold Night Shelter. Please call (321) 631-0306 Ext. 110 or visit our Facebook Page to see if the shelter is planning to be open. Doors open at 6:00 PM and space is limited. A meal will be served. Any donations of blankets or winter clothing is appreciated.

All are welcome.
