Paso Cares Warming Station closed for the season 

Paso Cares recently concluded its Warming Station season, which ran from Nov. 1 through April 30. The Warming Station provided shelter to the homeless on nights on which rain greater than 50% or temperatures 40 degrees or less was forecast. During this season, they opened the Warming Station on 80 nights, provided a total of 318 shelter-nights and served 29 different persons, 20 of whom were male and 9 were female.

Five churches hosted the Warming Station on a rotating basis. Those churches were: Covenant Presbyterian Church, First United Methodist Church, Highlands Church, Life Community Church, and Paso Robles Community Church.

Many people supported this effort by acting as chaperones, donating clothing and equipment, and feeding clients. Paso Cares plans to resume operation of the Warming Station in November 2018.
