Unfortunately we never had anyone utilize the warming areas, so we shifted our approach to try and better serve this population.
Goshen Police Department and other City employees do our best to provide support to those in need. When we have severe weather, Goshen PD will notify those in need of their options. That can range from connecting them with local churches, Interfaith Hospitality Network, and even transporting them directly to the shelter in Elkhart if they wish. We will never leave anyone out on the street who is seeking shelter.
Members of the Goshen community have an important role to play in protecting the homeless.
If you are aware of someone in need during severe weather, here are some things you can do:
Thank you again for working to help those in need. Please share this information with your friends and family. Together we will be able to make a bigger difference!
