TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — It’s now been a full week since a temporary warming center has been open to the homeless in Terre Haute.
As we prepare for freezing temperatures and the biggest winter storm we’ve seen in years, the service is vital.
The warming center located at St. Stephens Episcopal Church has seen a big turnout with the people they shelter, they’ve also been overwhelmed by support from the community and donations.
Reach Services partnered with the church for the service under a grant and are glad to be able to provide the service especially this week.
“The need unfortunately is always there. But there is something that can be done, whether it be through donations or centers like this there is always a way to help,” case manager with Reach Services, Andrew Miller, said.
Currently Reach Services is working on a day center where the homeless will be able to find shelter.
The hope is to keep the warming center up and running as needed if grant money continues to be available.
