As the colder temperatures are starting to arrive in our area, Wayne County Housing Coalition and our partner agencies are making plans for a Severe Weather Shelter for the coming winter months. The goal is to open a warm and safe space for anyone that needs to get out of the weather at the Wooster Salvation Army when the “feels like” temperature dips below 20 degrees. The Severe Weather Shelter hours will be 6pm through 8am, when open. In the past, the Severe Weather has opened when temperatures dropped below 20 degrees (winter 2019-2020) or to 9 degrees or below (winter 2018-2019) which did not require as much staff or volunteer oversight. We feel it is extremely important that the Severe Weather Shelter opens this winter before temperatures drop so low, but we need your help to make that happen.
