Shelter employees began making the rounds to popular homeless areas this afternoon.
With night time temperatures dropping to near freezing through Wednesday, the downtown Men's Development Center staff has prepared for a possible overflow.
In addition to 150 full time 'program' beds, the Star of Hope's Men's Center has 150 'overnight transient' beds. The Center is near capacity now but can offer additional sleeping space for about 100 homeless men.
The downtown Star of Hope Women and Family Emergency Shelter is at its 275 bed capacity but reports that additional space will be available to those seeking shelter from the cold weather. The shelter says no one will be turned away.
