HALO Helps Homeless Men A Day Early

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - One homeless shelter in Salisbury is opening its doors a day early to help the men of the community, who, otherwise, would have nowhere to go.

With temperatures Friday night dropping into single digits, hundreds of Salisbury's homeless men and women will be in danger. But residents can help.  Captain Simon of Salisbury police says if you see someone who looks like they are in distress or cold, you can give them a call.  They will then access the situation, and provide the man or woman with the help they need.

For the first time since opening their doors in 2007, HALO will be allowing men to stay overnight at the Center of Hope, which normally only allows women and children to stay the night.  HALO will be transforming the cafeteria into a sleeping area for the men.

To reserve a bed, men should call HALO's Center of Hope at 410-742-9356, or sign up at the day center.

Nancy Ulrich and her husband Dan have been going to HALO's center of hope for the past six months.  She says she is relieved that her husband won't have to brave the elements.  "I worry about him, I can't sleep at night because I worry about him being out in the woods, out in the rain," she says.

The shelter is prepared to accommodate seventy men, but HALO says they will do all they can to give everyone a bed who asks for one.

To reserve a bed, men should call HALO's Center of Hope at 410-742-9356, or sign up at the day center.

The next available Salisbury shelter will be Wesley Temple from January 4th through the 10th, with a maximum capacity of thirty.
