No one wants to be left out in the cold.

The Billy Brumfield house on Gallatin street will also welcome anyone in Friday night. The other shelters include, Matt's House Women's shelter located at 343 Adells Street.  It is open to women and women with children.

The Gateway Rescue Mission shelter on Gallatin is also open.  If there is an overflow crowd then cots will be set up in the Chapel.
