The Office of Homelessness Prevention and Intervention has activated the Emergency Summer Weather Plan through Thursday, July 5. The summer plan varies from the winter plan, as extended services will take place during the day.
LexTran will be offering free rides to shelters/day centers.
The Compassionate Caravan will be running during the day on Saturday and Sunday. The Hope Center HopeMobile will be covering Monday. Both will be disturbing water, sunscreen, and other supplies. Unlike the winter, the Compassionate Caravan does not have a contact number for the summer months. The Hope Center HopeMobile can be contacted at 859-252-7881.
Anyone needing assistance can dial 2-1-1, text their zip code to 898211, or log onto United Way 2-1-1 for locations of shelters and other resources in Lexington and surrounding counties.
Thank you to all the local emergency shelters and day centers who join together in this effort to provide and protect.
