With temperatures not above the freezing mark until Wednesday, the Coldest Nights Emergency Shelter will be open. When temperatures are below freezing at night, the shelter opens for homeless in the community.
Check in at the shelter at First Baptist Church is from 7:30 to 9:30 for men and women on the Academy Street side of the building. After receiving something to eat, the women then go across the street to St. Paul's Episcopal.
The shelter closes by 7am the next morning.
