Warming Center About To Heat Up
La Crosse's winter warming center is located in the basement of the First Baptist Church on West Main Street. It can accomodate around 15 people. And with overnight temp's in the single digits forecasted this week.......the center wil probably have to turn people away. Not something Karen Becker with Catholic Charities wants to see happen. And the stories of what people do when they have no place to stay....she says can be heartbreaking.
The project is a collaboration of congregations, social services and community members to offer homeless adults who don't qualify for shelters a warm, safe place to stay during the cold winter nights. It's open until March 31st.
