The men’s and women’s homeless shelters operated by Inter-Faith Ministries in downtown Wichita will be kept open all day Tuesday because of the dangerous winter storm in the area.
Normally the Warming Souls Winter Shelter at Inter-Faith Inn, 320 E. Central, closes at 7 a.m. each day before reopening at 6 p.m.
But men and women who check into the shelters at 6 p.m. Monday will be able to remain there through 7 a.m. Wednesday, said Anne Corriston, Inter-Faith’s executive director.
The shelter was kept open all day last Thursday, when a snow storm dumped 14.2 inches on Wichita, for the same reasons, she said
Never miss a local story.
“We are blessed in that we have several staff who live within walking distance of the shelters and can come to work regardless of conditions outside,” Corriston said.
