Davis Community Meals Cold Weather Shelter and Transitional Housing

Davis Community Meals also operates a shelter at 512 Fifth Street with ten beds set up to accommodate eight men and two women. During warm months, this facility serves as transitional housing for families in need. During cold weather months [no earlier than November and no later than the close of April], it operates solely as a cold weather shelter with opening and closing dates dependent upon weather.

As a cold weather shelter, this facility is open from 6pm-8am, with clients asked to leave by 7:30am to allow volunteers to clean the facility; there is currently no limit to the number of nights a client may stay. Clients are not permitted to leave and return after check-in, except to smoke in designated outdoor areas clients must check in by 8pm. Three staff members remain on site from 6pm-11pm and two staff members until 8am the following morning. Shelter clients are provided with a bed and food during their stay but are served only limited meals such as canned soup for dinner and coffee and pastries for breakfast. Clients arriving under the influence are not turned away unless they are believed to be a nuisance or pose a threat to either themselves or other clients. Clients must agree to shelter rules, including restrictions on loitering during closed hours, consumption of drugs and alcohol on site, weapons possession, etc. Clients must obtain a voucher earlier in the day to reserve a space at the cold weather shelter, and should contact Davis Community Meals at 1111 H Street for voucher information vouchers are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis;
