Salisbury Announces Community Emergency Shelter Project Schedule

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Local churches are reaching out to help the homeless population in Wicomico County, by giving them a warm place to sleep. Starting on Saturday, January 4th and running through March 28th, several community churches will be hosting the Community Emergency Shelter Project. The location will change weekly, and will host adult males only. A list of the schedule can be found below.

Due to the cold weather headed our way, HALO is opening its doors, on Friday at 8:45 AM until 5:00 PM, men are welcome to stay, and meals are available in the café. HALO would like to have the men call in to our office 410-742-9356 beginning Thursday for a head count, or they may sign up at the day facility.

Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan said, "Please reach out to the Police Department if you come across someone you believe to be homeless, so that we may help get them to safe shelter and out of the cold."
