March 17, 2020 – The National Weather Service prediction for significantly cold and wet weather has extended into Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Considering the weather prediction extension, Sierra Roots, Salvation Army, and the County of Nevada are continuing to activate the Extreme Weather Shelter Protocol for the next two nights- Tuesday and Wednesday, March 17th and 18th. Sierra Roots opens their shelter at 4:30pm in their Nevada City location and Salvation Army will open at 5:30 p.m. in their Grass Valley location. Both shelters close at 7:30 a.m. in the morning the next day. This a community-wide collaborative effort to temporarily shelter one of our most vulnerable populations during extreme weather events and connects homeless residents to additional available services.
The Homeless Outreach and Medical Engagement Team (HOME Team) will provide case management services to attendees and Hospitality House will assist in providing HAT Van transportation to and from the sheltering locations. The Nevada County Veteran Services Office will also be available for connecting homeless veterans to available services.
