A cold weather shelter is now open for adults in the Loudoun County community who may be experiencing a housing crisis.
The shelter, operated in partnership with the Loudoun County Continuum of Care, provides a warm sleeping environment for men and women from 9 a.m.-7 a.m. daily at the Sterling Community Center, 120 Enterprise Street in Sterling.
In addition to a place to sleep, the shelter also provides case management and mental health services.
“This is just a community endeavor, so everyone has a part to play in this. We’ve received many request from community members asking how they can support so if someone is interested in donating for the cold weather shelter we would as them to call our Loudoun Homeless Shelter Services,” said Dr. Yolanda Thomas, Assistant Director for Loudoun County Community Services.
The cold weather shelter will be open from now until March 31, 2019. Free transportation is provided from the Douglas Community Center in Leesburg where a shuttle bus departs every night at 9 p.m.
