We see that the night time temps are going to be very low until Dec 15th which is the beginning of our nightly openings without regard to temps. So with that in mind, we are calling Code Purple active until March 15th as of Tuesday 12/4! We will be open every night in Seaford, Bridgeville, Laurel (starting Jan 1st), Delmar, Milford, and Georgetown. (Note: Bethany is on hold until more volunteers can be found to stay overnight.) Here is a list of shelters and who they serve. Shelter Info

Please consider helping us by staying overnight at a shelter near you. We need all hands on deck to be open the next 102 days at 8 shelters! We can not open a shelter without overnight volunteers.
