Severe Weather Shelter Network (SWSN) partners with community organizations and agencies to provide overnight shelter on life-threatening winter nights for single men, single women, and couples without children living on the streets. SWSN works alongside community organizations to provide this shelter starting October 1st and going through April 30th. The Host Churches open when overnight temperatures are going to be 32 degrees or colder and wet or 20 degrees or colder and dry. Severe Weather is determined each morning by 10:30 a.m. for the upcoming evening.  You can call 720-257-9414 after 10:30 a.m. each day to hear if Severe Weather has been called.  Anyone who is interested in staying in one of the shelter sites must register with SWSN. Registration Sites help individuals with the screening and registration process in order for guests to have access to the shelter for the season. Registration cannot be done over the phone or online. Each guest must visit one of the partners in person to register. These registration sites will also connect guests with resources to assist in moving toward a more safe and stable lifestyle.  Registration sites are only available Monday-Friday during the times listed below.  If you need shelter on a Severe Weather day and it is after-hours, a holiday, or a weekend, please call 720-588-0772 or 211.
