Emergency Housing During The Winter: every November, we post procedures for approving emergency housing during cold weather or adverse weather conditions. This winter, due to COVID-19, our program requirements are less strict and not weather dependent. If you are homeless & need housing, call 1-800-479-6151 during regular business hours or dial 2-1-1 after hours and on weekends.
