Gainesville’s Cold Night Shelter Program anticipated Nov. 1

Press release from City of Gainesville

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – City of Gainesville officials anticipate severe weather conditions, including temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit, during evening hours on Wednesday, Nov. 1. 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.

  • Years ago, I got into some trouble, and had to ride a bike everyday to work, and after riding a bicycle in the December cold rain, I done whatever it took to get my Driver’s License back, and then I got a car.
    So forgive me when I say, they homeless drug addicts,
    because you continue to cater to them.

    • I have been homeless since Feb 7th I have a vehicle but the job I have isn’t 3x the income that people want for rent so I will continue to be homeless but my spirits are always high ….but I refuse to go to Grace bc of all the drug use out there

  • Let them shelter at Ward and Poe’s homes, they left the lights on.

    I’m sure they would appreciate some cuddling.
