JH&S Maximizes Space During Coldest Days- Code Blue

Posted January 6, 2016 By Josephs House

Code Blue Flag
The sad fact is that during most of the year JH&S has to turn away requests for shelter because we are full. However, during the coldest and harshest weather, we use every possible corner of our shelter at 74 Ferry St. to accommodate all those in need. We open our doors to anyone- no questions asked- during Code Blue Emergencies. That often means finding a corner to add an extra cot or floor mat. Most cold nights all of our couches and chairs are occupied. Last year, on a few winter nights, we came close to doubling our normal occupancy levels. Our thanks to the Red Cross for donating cots for this program. You can help too! Please call Patti Tullgren at 874-1247 for details.
