[NEWS] Area Organizations Up Homeless Outreach for Record Cold Temps

 

As the region endures potentially life-threatening cold temperatures for those spending long periods of time outdoors, local organizations are ramping up their efforts to make sure Philadelphia’s homeless community stays safe and warm through what meteorologists are calling the coldest temperatures the city has seen in nearly two decades.

Local homelessness and poverty advocacy organization Project HOME operates a 24/7 Homeless Outreach Hotline. Project HOME spokesman Laura Weinbaum says people can call the hotline if they see anyone out on the streets that may need shelter.
