Briton’s Reflections On COVID-19 from the Frontlines

Homeless Services

“Winter in the Midwest is an exceptionally difficult time to experience homelessness, but there should not be a single individual who experiences a cold night on the street. On a particularly perilous night, ice storms made many roads impassable. To compound the situation, the night was bitterly cold. Our dedicated shelter staff slowly made their way to the Emergency Shelter and provided another night of warmth and safety for our guests. Similarly, the Winter Warming Station operated without fail, providing a safe place for our guests to escape the cold of winter. Because of the continuation of the pandemic, this winter was especially difficult for many of us; but the team of staff and volunteers at LUM continue to provide vital resources, warmth and compassion for our community throughout the cold months.”

Briton Weise, Director, Emergency Shelter
