ARLINGTON

When weather conditions become hazardous for individuals to be outdoors overnight, the Cold Weather Overflow Emergency Shelter Response Plan will be initiated.  The threshold for hazardous weather is met when the temperature in Arlington is expected to be below 39 degrees for more than 4 hours overnight.

Individuals and households in Arlington should seek shelter at Arlington Life Shelter. If Arlington Life Shelter is nearing capacity, Salvation Army and SafeHaven will be activated as overflow shelters and transportation will be provided to these additional spaces.

FORT WORTH

Presbyterian Night Shelter will operate 80 overflow beds for men and 20 overflow beds for women from June 1 to March 31. These beds are open every night regardless of weather.

When weather triggers are met and it is either below 40 degrees in wet conditions; below 35 degrees in dry conditions; or a wind chill of below 32 degrees for three or more consecutive hours, Cold Weather Overflow beds are activated.

*If people arrive after 7pm and a shelter bed is not available, direct men, women and children to the shelters indicated above for each population.
