The DAY SHELTER OF SIOUXLAND will be opening its doors for a trial period beginning April 3, 2017 at 8:30 AM! The Day Shelter of Siouxland will be located at 71...7 West 7th Street, in the front part of the Soup Kitchen. Hours will be from 8:30 until supper is served at the Soup Kitchen - around 5 or 7 PM. The shelter will be operational seven days a week through Sunday, April 30th. The Day Shelter of Siouxland's mission is to provide daytime shelter during the winter months to those in need, thereby preventing exposure to freezing temperatures, which could result in death. The shelter also hopes to provide connection to needed services from non-profit organizations serving the homeless population during the daytime and business hours. This project is the focus of a group of community leaders of the Leadership Siouxland Class of 2017, and is made possible by generous funding from Mercy Medical Center, and support from the Boards of Directors of the Warming Shelter and the Soup Kitchen.

The DAY SHELTER OF SIOUXLAND's trial run during the month of April is just the beginning of a permanent effort! Members of Leadership Siouxland's Class of 2017 are now fundraising for the Day Shelter of Siouxland's first season, from November 1, 2017 - April 30, 2018 (mirroring the operational months of the Warming Shelter). If you or your business would like to donate to the Day Shelter of Siouxland,Donations are tax-deductible and you will receive a letter back for tax purposes.
