We are actively preparing for next winter and ensuring that this shelter continues to offer safe spaces for people during incliment weather. In addition to focusing on next winter, we are also working with the City of Raleigh and Wake County to ensure continued operational readiness to respond to other incliment weather events that pose life treatening situations for people experiencing unsheltered homelessness.  


Your support for this work helps us continue to provide this space for our most vulnerable neighbors.
