Cold weather shelters open in Pueblo

Some non-profits in pueblo are lending a helping hand to people who need a place to stay warm during these cold nights.

The Salvation Army off of W. 13th will be transforming its dining room into a shelter.

The tables and chairs will be replaced with about 50 mats. The Salvation Army in Pueblo does this every year as cold weather hits.

It's a men's only warming shelter.

Wayside Cross will take in women at their regular shelter if they have beds available.

Posada is working with the Pueblo Police Department to help families and children.

"They have the authorization to put families or individuals in motel rooms, as they're needed, and posada pays for those rooms, and then we also provide gift cards so folks can get meals 24 hours a day," said Anne Stattelman, Director of Posada.

Posada will also be going out to homeless camps to warn people about the cold weather.

At that time, they'll also pass out sleeping bags, blankets and socks.
