The Outlook

As of December 4, 2020

Overnight lows are predicted to stay below freezing through Monday. The Warming Station will be open for intake and motel vouchers during that time.   Tuesday may warm a little so we will continue to monitor.  It appears that temperatures will drop again below freezing after next Tuesday.  Please note that we are able to offer only limited support to homeless individuals who have no other alternative for shelter due to COVID-19. However, this assistance is only available to those who have previously registered with us this summer and fall or through our Day Center Operation, unless special authorization is received. Motel vouchers are good for one night only with reduced hours of occupancy.

The N2N Board of Directors has decided not to open the Warming Station this year at our current location. Concerns over the spread of COVID-19 in the confined space of the building led to this decision. In addition, the N2N volunteer pool has diminished significantly due to COVID concerns. We do not have sufficient volunteers to staff the station as has been done in previous years. We are currently looking at alternatives so homeless folks can get out of the cold, including motel vouchers and a temporary change of location that would be safer. Keep checking back for progress reports.

The Day Center is now open on Mondays for limited services, including showers.  We are using the following special procedures to help keep everyone safe.

  • Intake is done outside in the back between the buildings in the covered area
  •  Everyone must wear face coverings.  N2N has a limited supply for those who do not have them
  • Everyone must wash their hands upon arrival.
  • Only one person will be allowed in the building at a time to get a shower
  • All other services will be done outside at the intake area
  • Everyone must maintain appropriate social distancing

The kitchen floor is complete and an application submitted to the health department.  We have yet to put new flooring in Veda's Room, the dining area.  All meals are expected to be take out until a COVID vaccine is widely available.

We are always looking for additional committed volunteers.  Please consider volunteering for N2N.  Please visit our volunteer page to find out how you can help.
