Nonprofit organizations, San Antonio outreach offer homeless people transportation to warming shelters
San Antonio nonprofit organizations and city outreach worked together to get homeless people off the streets and into warm and dry places to stay. The freezing and wet conditions could be deadly to those stuck with nowhere to go.
Some San Antonio shelters forced to turn people away amid plunging temperatures due to limited space
RELATE: Cold & cloudy Friday, More wintry weather expected by Sunday nightA combination of cold temperatures and rain is something area shelters, such as The Salvation Army, are very familiar with. Local organizations and church groups, such as Last Chance Ministries, have opened their doors to provide comfort during frigid nights. Jamie Llamas, a community organizer with Last Chance Ministries, said she immediately planned to assist the community as soon as she heard the weather forecast. The Salvation Army will be giving away blankets and cold-weather gear to those it cannot accept in the shelter due to limited space. Last Chance Ministries said it would be housing folks and providing shelter until the cold weather subsides.
