Now that dangerous wind chills are settling over the Capital Region, there is concern for those who don't have a place to go.
Homeless advocates are now focusing on getting the less fortunate off the streets for the next few days.
At the Sheridan Hollow drop-in center, roughly 98 people stayed at the shelter over the past few nights. The center is expecting that to increase over the next several days.
Meanwhile, the Homeless Action Committee is continuing to hit the streets in their vans. They’re bringing food and warm clothes, while also letting the homeless know about the shelters that are available.
The Capital City Rescue Mission will also have beds available for the homeless over the next few days. The Open Door Mission in Glens Falls and the Code Blue Shelter in Sarartoga Springs are also open.
