Local emergency shelters stay open 24/7

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Despite the crippling snowstorm, emergency shelters provided a warm place to stay for those with no home.

The Friends of the Homeless Shelter in Springfield was filled to capacity. Shelter Manager David Ware told 22News they never turn anyone in need away.

The shelter recently added extra costs to accommodate everyone looking for a safe place, out of the cold, snowy weather.

“We try to accommodate anyone that may have a problem due to this inclement weather,” said Ware. “We provide temporary shelter for anyone that needs this place because we are friends of the homeless so we are here to help.”

The emergency shelter on Worthington Street is open 24/7.
