As wintry nights turn colder, emergency shelters are opening up locally for the homeless.

In Davis, Davis Community Meals offers a shelter at 512 Fifth St. with room for eight men and two women. Shelter guests are not required to be clean and sober, but they must not pose a threat to the shelter environment.

Vouchers for shelter space are provided during the day at 1111 H St., beginning at 8 a.m. To check on availability, call 530-753-9204.

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

Beginning Dec. 2, Davis churches will offer the Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter at eight local sites on a rotating basis. All homeless individuals and families are served, up to 25 to 50 people based on location. 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.

Dinner is served from 5 to 5:30 p.m. each day, and shelter intake begins at 6 p.m. After that hour, guests must be referred by police, fire or a public service agency. The shelter is open until 6 a.m. the next morning.
