An Emergency Homeless Shelter Committee formed by Mayor Allen Joines will meet at 11:00 a.m. Monday, Dec. 1, at First Baptist Church, 501 W. Fifth Street, to complete plans for an emergency shelter for the homeless who cannot be accommodated at the city’s permanent homeless shelters during especially cold winter nights.

Last winter, volunteers contributed 4,050 hours to staff the emergency shelter, which provided 1,398 nights of shelter. (One night of shelter equals putting one person up for one night.)
