The Cold Wet Weather Mat Program operates nightly from 10 PM – 7 AM during the period November 1st – March 31st. The program is operated by the Hope For Freedom Society using host church facilities. Homeless persons are picked up at designated muster points in each of the 3 Tri-Cities and bused to the shelter location. Five Tri-Cities area churches host the shelter on a rotating basis, one month at a time. Shelter clients are provided with a mat and blankets for the night, an evening meal upon arrival, a breakfast and a bag lunch before transport back to the muster points in the morning, and, if desired, someone to listen.
