We were ready to have a test run of Eureka’s Extreme Weather Shelter for the homeless when Mother Nature jumped the gun. A hard freeze warning for TONIGHT prompted the opening the Extreme Weather Shelter at the St. Vincent’s Dining Facility at 35 West 3rd Street, in Old Town, Eureka.
I am posting this in case someone out there sees someone who needs shelter for the night.
Please send them to the Eureka Rescue Mission, 110 2nd Street in Eureka
If the Mission is at capacity, folks will be sent to the Dining Facility–OR IF YOU FIND FOLKS WHO ARE NOT COMFORTABLE AT THE MISSION, HAVE THEM TELL THE MISSION INTAKE FOLKS AND THEY WILL SEND THEM TO ST. VINCENT’S AFTER INTAKE.
Coordinator Steve Bell is at the Dining Hall to welcome folks and between St. Vincent’s and the Rescue Mission, Eureka can provide shelter to everyone who wants to be indoors tonight. We even have donated dog kennels so folks with animals can be sure their pets are safe.
I will post more about this project in a bit, but wanted to get the word out about the shelter now.
Please help us to help those who need it most…
