Code Blue and transportation to shelters


A Code Blue Alert is in effect until Monday, January 8 and a winter shelter declaration (when the temperature is 32 degrees or below) has been made until Thursday, January 11, meaning additional shelter beds are available for those who need them.

As part of a city-run pilot program, a shuttle is available for single adults in front of our 421 Fallsway clinic while this Code Blue Alert is in effect. The bus arrives between 6 p.m.and 6:30 p.m. and takes those who need shelter directly to overflow locations. An outreach worker will be on site to assist. And these additional beds are available only during winter shelter declaration.

Transportation to overflow shelters is also available for single adults at Weinberg Housing and Resource Center, and for families at Sarah’s Hope Mount Street. Individuals should plan to arrive by 6 p.m. to allow time for transportation to the shelter and dinner. Accommodations will be provided from 6 p.m. until 11 a.m. the next day. At shelters, each person will be provided with dinner, breakfast and access to shower and laundry services. 

For questions, please contact Katie League.

Brandon Berryain doesn’t want his position on our Board of Directors to be a status symbol. For him, it’s an opportunity to ground the Board with his lived experience and encourage other clients to get involved. Brandon says, “As much as being a leader matters, it’s being an example that matters more.”
