St Vincent de Paul is committed to provide a warming center for homeless individuals during bouts of extreme cold this winter. “We are pleased to offer this necessary service to help some of the most vulnerable people during harsh weather and in planning for the extreme weather we must consider the homeless and their safety”
The warming center will be activated November 1, 2018 and through February 28, 2019 and open when temperatures fall below 28 degrees.
When activated, the St Vincent’s shelters will be open from 7:00pm-7:00am. To take people to the shelter, a van will be leaving Father Bill’s Kitchen at the St Vincent de Paul campus in CdA at 6:30pm and driving people back to Father Bill’s Kitchen the next morning.
The Post Falls Shelter located at 202 W. 7th Street in Post Falls, in the Kamps Apartment basement. St Vincent de Paul is able to shelter 45 individuals and will have available sleeping bags, blankets, gloves, stocking caps, coats, a full bathroom, warm food and drinks.
A huge thank you to everyone who has taken the time to donate sleeping bags, blankets, and food. Everything has been so appreciated by those we serve.
If you are able to help or donate please contact Warming Center Coordinator Scott at 208.664.3095 ext. 306.
