Extreme Weather Shelters for Homeless Citizens, Saturday-Monday and Tuesday

Cold Weather Shelter_NewsFlash

There is a severe storm predicted for this weekend. The National Weather Service is predicting heavy rain and snow in the foothills starting Friday through Monday and cold temperatures early next week.

In an effort to collaborate over one of our most vulnerable populations, the City of Nevada City, Sierra Roots, Salvation Army, and the County have activated their Extreme Weather Shelter Protocol for Saturday, February 2nd, through Wednesday morning, February 6th. This is an effort to temporarily shelter homeless citizens in our community during and after the storm so they can dry out and get some warm food into their system.

Both Extreme Weather Shelters will be open starting Saturday night. Due to limited facility availability, Sierra Roots will only open for three nights, but Salvation Army will stay open a forth night through February 5th for families and adults.

Locations:

City of Nevada City:

Veteran’s Hall (lower level) located at 415 North Pine Street, Nevada City CA 95959

Open Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights: February 2nd through 4th

Grass Valley Area:

Salvation Army located at 10725 Alta St, Grass Valley, CA 95945. Phone 274-3500

Open Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights: February 2nd through 5th

NOTE: This facility is Limited to 25 people maximum and prioritizes Sheltering families first. They will accept single adults only if the Nevada City shelter is at capacity.

Further assistance for homeless citizens can also be gained by dialing 2-1-1 or 1(844) 319-4119 to speak with a local 211 Connecting Point call specialist.
