With the temperatures dipping down into the 30s and 40s overnight this week, a Virginia Beach organization has announced that homeless adults can sleep comfortably on their premises.

Working with the Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation, the Judeo-Christian Outreach Center operates the winter shelter program. Throughout the winter months, participating faith organizations will rotate weekly to provide beds, blankets and hot meals to those in need.

Homeless adults can visit the Day Support Services Center, located at 825 18th St., between 5 and 7 p.m. each night to sign up for shelter services. Participants are provided with transportation to and from the shelter. Each adult can bring one bag of personal items with them.

The program is also seeking donations of blankets. To donate, drop off new and gently used blankets to the Judeo-Christian Outreach Center, located at 1053 Virginia Beach Blvd.

The Winter Shelter program runs through April. For more information, please call (757) 385-5761.
