FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO):  When the temperatures drop, the doors to the Rescue Mission open for the homeless.

The Rescue Mission have released their winter plans to help keep those in need safe during the winter weather.  They’ve released the following guidelines for their services:

Temperatures below 40 degrees in real degrees or because of wind chill or other conditions: East lobby of The Rescue Mission will serve as a warming shelter from 7am-6pm.

Temperatures below 32 degrees in real degrees or because of wind chill or other conditions: East lobby of The Rescue Mission will serve as a warming shelter from 7am-7pm.

Temperatures below 10 degrees in real degrees or because of wind chill or other conditions: The Rescue Mission will serve as a warming shelter from 7am-7pm and will provide overnight accommodations for men who come to the warming shelter.

Winter contingency shelter policy: During winter months, when temperatures are unsafe, The Rescue Mission’s men’s facility (301 W. Superior St.) does not turn away anyone based on bed space. Cots are available for use in the Chapel as overflow shelter. Men in need of shelter can check in each night at 7:00pm.

 They also mentioned that men are encouraged to enter Life House, a housing program to meet a person with both basic needs and spiritual support.
