On December 13, 2005, hypothermia claimed the life of one of our local homeless women. This was the first death we had experienced due to the severe winter conditions in our mountains. Her death deeply affected our homeless community, producing fear and grief. Feed My Sheep made the decision that this would not happen again and we started a Winter Overnight Program. This Program began in two motel rooms in 2006 and now has grown to the basement of the Church of Christ. We provide air mattresses, pillows, sheets and blankets to keep an average of 28-30 guests warm. With the extra space at the Church, we have opened our program to individuals and families in a crisis situation such as sudden eviction, job loss, fire or anyone stranded due to road conditions.
