Cold Night Shelter Program Anticipated November 2

Press release from City of Gainesville

City of Gainesville officials anticipate severe weather conditions, including temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit during evening hours, Monday, Nov. 2. The anticipated temperatures will lead to the activation of the city’s Cold Night Shelter (CNS) Program, and it is expected to remain in effect until overnight low temperatures rise above 45 F. The CNS program normally runs from Nov. 1 through March 31.

St. Francis House and GRACE Marketplace at the Empowerment Center will provide Cold Night Shelter services to people in need of shelter as long as overnight temperatures remain below 45 F. The CNS program providers serve additional persons in need of shelter so that families and individuals desiring shelter will have a warm place to stay. St. Francis House provides temporary shelter that is appropriate for families, women and children. GRACE Marketplace primarily serves individual adults.

  • Why doesn’t Poe, Ward and the rest of the hypocrites offer to house them in their homes? Oh wait, that would show they really care about the community.
    By the way, did anyone else see the Twitter post to the Alachua County School Board page? What a great leader he is…NOT! Calling a person a “chicken sh*t thief.” He forgets how he continues to steal from the taxpayers of Gainesville. He’ll never tell his daughter that will he.

    • I agree and there’s a lot of empty churches around the
      City where the unfortunate can stay…let’s not play the
      Blame game…some people like living outside and
      Are personally responsible for where they’re at…it’s
      Not my fault. Gainesville attracted a lot of bums to
      Our city with their 10 year plan to end homelessness
      And building of grace Mktplc. Build it and they will come..
      The unintended consequences of their Marxist liberalism.
