With the dangerously cold temperatures continuing in Montgomery County, the shelter in Downtown Silver Spring will open Saturday and Sunday during the day from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Anyone without a warm place may take safe shelter from the cold at the Interfaith Works Empowerment Center, 2nd Floor, 8106 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring.

Anyone who has a concern about the safety of a homeless individual should call the police non-emergency number 301.279.8000 to report the location and provide a description of the individual.  The emergency shelters are available around-the-clock to receive homeless individuals, without any pre-screening.

All Montgomery County facilities, such as libraries, recreation centers and senior centers open during their regular hours can be used by anyone needing an escape from the cold. Public shopping centers are also available as warm locations during their hours of operation.
