[NEWS] Local Organization Works to Help Homeless Stay Warm

 

From 6ABC

The bitterly cold weather is especially dangerous for the homeless and a local organization is working extra hard to ensure they have a warm place to stay.

At just after 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, the temperature read 18 degrees.

The wind was howling outside of White Rock Baptist Church at 53rd and Chestnut streets where a homeless woman sat.

Someone called Project HOME and said she had been sitting out there for hours.

"Sometimes people who are outside are mentally ill therefore they are not aware of the temperature, so we're their eyes and ears and we will assist them in getting that," said Paulina Vorn, outreach services coordinator.
