As temps drop, cold weather shelter opens

Tuesday, December 1, 2020 by Tai Moses

With temperatures predicted to drop below freezing tonight, LifeWorks has activated its emergency cold weather shelter with the aim of getting homeless youth and young adults off the streets and into a warm safe space for the night. The shelter, at 835 N. Pleasant Valley Road, is available only on the coldest nights of the year and donations are urgently needed to help the organization provide blankets, clothing, food and other basic needs. For information on cold weather shelters throughout Austin, call (512) 305-4233.
