Riverside- With the approach of El Nino the County and City of Riverside have provided funding for additional beds with Path of Life Ministries Community Shelter.  The shelter will have additional beds to help those who are living in their cars or on the streets during the winter season. 

 

The additional beds will be available on December 1 at 2840 Hulen Place in Riverside and operate on a first-come first- serve basis through April 15, 2016.  The emergency beds will be available at 4:00 p.m., seven days a week regardless of the weather.

 

 In addition to a safe and warm place to sleep, shelter guests are offered an evening hot meal, breakfast in the morning, and shower facilities.  Additional referrals to and assistance from community resources also will be available.

 

Path of Life Ministries also operates a shelter program at the same location designed to help adult individuals exit homelessness, a 50-bed family shelter program with the same goals for families with children, several housing programs for homeless individuals and families, and other programs focused on employment, behavioral health, and childcare.
