The Cold Weather Shelters will be open November 30, 2015 through March 31, 2016.
From the Monday after Thanksgiving through the end of March, we open two additional sites and continue year-round operation of the Boccardo Reception Center (BRC) shelter with additional beds. These seasonal nightly shelters serve as a refuge from harsh winter weather conditions for homeless men, women, and families. The program is funded by the County of Santa Clara.
