ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) – A 24-hour warming shelter is now open in St. Louis County.
“The Salvation Army Midland Division knows the immediate need for families and individuals to get out of the dangerously cold temperatures,” said Lt. Colonel Dan Jennings, The Salvation Army Midland Divisional Commander. “We appreciate St. Louis County partnering with The Salvation Army to assist our community.”
“Warmth and a roof over our heads are basic needs. Yet, inadequate housing can happen to anyone. It is our responsibility to connect those in need with services and shelter,” said County Executive Sam Page. “I am pleased that we are able to make this joint effort to fulfill a few fundamental needs with dignity and respect.”
