The 2016-17 Winter Shelter opened yesterday evening at the Shelterhouse, Baron Center, 411 Gest Street, Cincinnati 45202.  People can arrive after 7:00PM.  The Winter Shelter is in a separate portion of the building with its own, labeled entrance and separate facilities.  It is done this way so that anyone who may not currently feel okay in the traditional shelter setting, will hopefully feel more able to go to the Winter Shelter.
Also,  While the Baron Center’s main facility is for men, the Winter Shelter is for anyone who would otherwise be outside.
Please encourage folks to go the Winter Shelter.  You can use this flyer https://gallery.mailchimp.com/82976bc34d0c29ff4bb566b46/files/2016_17_flyer.pdf?utm_source=Master+List&utm_campaign=002e7aa64f-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2016_12_08&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_9e49c95d0d-002e7aa64f-106734233&mc_cid=002e7aa64f&mc_eid=9774ee1058.  The Winter Shelter is run very well and is a life saver for sure.  ID is not required and a person may give as little or as much information as they wish when they arrive.  The goal is simply to keep people warm and alive.
The Winter Shelter will close each morning at 6AM.  This time is chosen based on when people typically leave on their own.
