This week, LUM has opened a Winter Warming Station to complement the services of the LUM Emergency Shelter.
The Winter Warming Station opened on November 15 and has been utilized by individuals needing a place in the evening to “warm up.” All are welcome. The Winter Warming Station is located in the LUM Office building (420 N 4th Street, Lafayette) and is open from midnight to 7 a.m. until April 2017. No one in our community should have to spend the night outdoors in the harsh weather — and the LUM Winter Warming Station allows individuals, including those who are not eligible to stay at the LUM Emergency Shelter, to be in our safe, secure indoor warm space. It also gives individuals an opportunity to learn about other services offered by LUM and other local agencies for which they may be eligible.
Other contingency plans are in place during stormy weather or if temperatures get dangerously low. For more details, please email Joe Micon (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you wish to make a donation to the LUM Emergency Shelter programs, please click HERE.
