Out of the Cold

Start date: December 3, 2018

End date: March 1, 2019

When Iowa’s frigid winter blows in, the change in weather can be life-threatening for people experiencing homelessness.  As temperatures drop, they are at an increased risk of developing exposure-related conditions and dying from the below-zero temperatures. The Out of the Cold campaign funds our low-barrier Winter Emergency Shelter and Overflow Shelter and provides increased shelter capacity which is essential to accommodate the amplified need during winter months.
