The shelter is open daily from 6 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. through March 31.

Again, there is no requirement that guests must be clean and sober, but they may not pose a threat to the shelter environment.

Intake occurs daily from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Davis Friends Meeting House, 345 L St. Guests then are transported to the host church, arriving at 6 p.m. and staying until 7 a.m. the next morning. The shelter program will operate through March 16.
