November 25, 2019 – The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the foothills. Low snow levels and cold temperatures are predicted this Tuesday through Thursday afternoon.
In an effort to collaborate over one of our most vulnerable populations, Sierra Roots, the City of Nevada City, and the County of Nevada have initiated their Extreme Weather Shelter Protocol for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights, November 26th through 29th. The Extreme Weather Shelter will open at 4:30 p.m. each evening and be open until 7:30 a.m. the next morning. This is an effort to temporarily shelter homeless residents in our community during extreme weather events.
The Homeless Outreach and Medical Engagement Team (HOME Team) will be providing case management services to attendees and Hospitality House will be assisting in providing HAT Van transportation to and from the sheltering event. The Nevada County Veteran Services Office will also be available for connecting homeless veterans to available services.
Salvation Army will not be opening in Grass Valley on those nights.
City of Nevada City:
Veteran’s Hall (lower level) located at 415 North Pine Street, Nevada City CA 95959
Further assistance for homeless residents can also be gained by dialing 2-1-1 or 1(844) 319-4119 to speak with a local 211 Connecting Point call specialist.
