ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar) – Odessa’s Army Salvation Army announced it plans to open emergency shelters Wednesday as colder weather begins to move into the basin.
The shelter will be open Wednesday and Thursday nights as long as the temperature remains below 34 degrees. Major Luis Melendez of the Salvation Army said anyone experiencing homelessness or powerlessness is welcome to stay.
“You get a warm place to sleep, a warm shower, and a meal,” Melendez says.
Dinner will be served every day from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm and breakfast will be served the next morning. At 6:30 pm, volunteers will begin the intake process, which will end at 9:00. Melendez said no one is allowed in after 9:00 p.m. Shelter-seekers are required to bring ID, but exceptions will be made for those without ID on a case-by-case basis.
Shelter-seekers will need to fill out an application prior to stay and will be screened for fever and alcohol intake prior to admission. Additionally, a mask will be required.
The shelter is located at 811 E 10order Street.
