The LFUCG Office of Homelessness Prevention and Intervention has extended the activation of the Community Emergency Winter Weather Plan until the morning of Friday, December 4th. With the arrival of winter weather and a biting wind chill, Lexington has also activated its Community Emergency Winter Weather Plan for shelters. Shelters have added capacity, but the process to access shelter has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Anyone needing shelter in the surrounding counties, can go to uwbg211.org.
