Due to forecasted low temperatures, Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida has declared Monday, January 6 and Tuesday, January 7, 2014 as “Cold Nights.” This means that the Coalition will not refuse any person seeking shelter from the cold, regardless of space.
Full-sized blankets are needed from the community for use over the cold season.
On the Coalition’s main campus, the Men’s Pavilion accommodates over 250 single men on an average night, and the Center for Women and Families houses up to 240 men, women and children. Overflow space will be available in these facilities for people seeking shelter from the extreme cold temperatures.
In addition to the Coalition’s main campus, the Women’s Residential and Counseling Center Campus (WRCC), which normally accommodates up to 138 women and children, will provide shelter in its recreation room. Single women and women with children are welcome at WRCC; all are welcome at the Coalition’s main campus.
The Coalition for the Homeless main campus is located at 639 West Central Boulevard and the Women’s Residential and Counseling Center is located at 107 East Hillcrest Street, both in Downtown Orlando.
