The Office of Homelessness Prevention & Intervention Weather Plan has been activated due to the forecast of extreme cold temperatures in Lexington. This plan will remain in effect through Thursday, February 8, 2018.
LexTran will be offering free rides to shelters. However, both the Hope Center Street Outreach and the Compassionate Caravan will not be operating as normal this evening due to the annual Point-In-Time count (LexCount). As part of LexCount, more than 70 volunteers will be going out across the city to locate, count and offer rides to shelters.
Anyone needing assistance can dial 2-1-1, text their zip code to 898211 or visit uwbg211.org.
