From October 15 through March 15, the Mayor's Office of Human Services (MOHS) will provide emergency shelter to anyone experiencing homelessness on nights when the temperature, which includes wind chill, drops to 32 degrees and below. No one will be turned away!

Daily notifications about the winter shelter status will go out by 3 p.m., but are typically sent out much earlier in the day. Individuals and families seeking shelter should arrive to the appropriate hub by 6 p.m. to allow time for transportation to the shelter and dinner service. Transportation to the overflow shelters will be available until 11 p.m. 

Accommodations will be provided from 6 p.m. until 11 a.m. the next day. In addition to transportation to and from the shelter, each person will be provided with dinner, breakfast and access to shower and laundry services.
