Polar Vortex: Impact on LUM Homeless Guests
LUM Severe Winter Weather Protocol
Lafayette Urban Ministry has a shelter protocol for severely cold and snowy weather. LUM provides bus transportation from the local day shelter to the LUM Emergency Shelter and the LUM Winter Warming Station on evenings with dangerous wind-chill temperatures.
Due to severe weather conditions this week, buses were available to transport guests from the local day shelter to the LUM Emergency Shelter and Winter Warming Station at 8:30 p.m. Additionally, the Winter Warming Station opened at 9 p.m. (three hours earlier) on these nights.
Special thanks to ALL of our LUM shelter volunteers especially our bus drivers.
