Severe Weather Network

Emergency Shelter

For Individuals Experiencing Homelessness

The Severe Weather Network Livingston County, a nonprofit organization offering seasonal emergency sheltering services to homeless adult men and women, will open on December 1,2020 with operational changes in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Due to Covid-19, the Severe Weather Network has pivoted and designed a model of sheltering that will better ensure the safety of guests, volunteers and staff. The organization has partnered with a local hotel to provide emergency sheltering accommodations to homeless adult men and women in Livingston County from December 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021. The Severe Weather Network will operate a 24-hour emergency shelter hotline effective December 1 for guests to call in advance to register for assistance. (See details below)
