Borderstanians: The following post is from 14th & U and a good reminder of how the homeless suffer even more in cold weather. Call the Shelter Hotline Transport at 800-535-7252 if you see someone outside at danger from the cold weather. You can get more information about the Shelter Hotline online.

It’s chilly again, and those who live outside are at risk of hypothermia and frostbite. If you see someone suffering out in the cold, please make a call to Shelter Hotline Transport at 800-535-7252. They make periodic rounds in the city, but, when alerted, will go directly to the location of someone who may be at risk for hypothermia. Those who turn down transportation to a shelter will be offered blankets and warm clothing.
