If you need shelter or know someone who is, the New Hope Center of Paris are keeping their doors OPEN through the colder months.
“New Hope Center of Paris NOW through the End OF JANUARY will be opening their offices on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m to assist with those in need of shelter,” they said in a recent Facebook post.
They will not be open for general business, only to assist those in need with sheltering.
“We know we are entering the coldest month, and we do not want to see our brothers and sisters in Christ become ill or die living on the streets. New Hope Center currently has one bed available,” they said.
For those that would like to donate funds to enable them to provide hotel stays during these cold weather months, please visit their website and make a financial contribution.
Also, if you would like to assist with the bus fare for those trying to get back to family, you can notate that on your donation as well.
Those looking to volunteer during these times, you can phone (903) 783-0353 ext. 101 to Tanteta Scott.
“As we get closer to the end of January, we will evaluate our need to continue with this service into February,” they added.
