THE SALVATION ARMY TO OPEN WARMING STATION IN MIDLAND
(January 12, 2024)
MIDLAND, TEXAS -- The City of Midland wants residents to know that The Salvation Army in Midland is working to help those experiencing homelessness and provide a warm, safe place to get out of the cold, not just at night, but during the day.
“We make an additional 70 emergency cots available in our shelter during inclement weather, on top of the 70 beds available year-round,” said Captain Robert Coriston, with The Salvation Army in Midland. “We will do our best to make sure everyone has a warm, safe place to sleep, and no-one is left outside exposed to the freezing winter weather. We currently have 78 people staying in our shelter, including men, women, and families.”
The warming station will be open "anytime the temperatures reach 42 degrees or below" at The Salvation Army, which located at 600 E. Wall St. in Midland.
“As temperatures drop, we recognize the critical need for our services, particularly for our most vulnerable neighbors facing real, life-threatening challenges,” Coriston said. “Because The Salvation Army is embedded in the communities where it serves, teams are already on the ground and can respond immediately when a disaster strikes, or weather suddenly turns.”
