Tomorrow is New Year's day. The library and many public places where the homeless can stay warm and safe during the day will be closed. The Journey Home was scheduled to be closed during the holiday as well. However, with temperatures hovering between the low teens and low twenties during the day tomorrow, we will be opening our center as a warming station. It is too cold to be safe outside. We have no volunteer groups scheduled to help, due to the holiday. If you're available and want to help us get a lunch together, let me know! We could use your help... Thanks and happy new year!
