Due to the cold weather, shelters in Asheville and Buncombe County will offer emergency cold weather services to those who are homeless or would not otherwise have a safe, warm place to stay.

When the temperature falls below 32 degrees, area shelters will be designated "Code Purple".

People who are homeless will have the opportunity to come inside and warm up during the day, even if a shelter would be typically closed.

Extra floor, cot and bed space will be available at overnight shelters to make sure no one has to stay outside.

Here's a list of shelters in Asheville:

Western Carolina Rescue Ministries, 225 Patton Ave, Asheville, NC 28801

For men, women and children. Overflow night beds, daytime chapel space.

Veterans' Restoration Quarters, 1329 Tunnel Rd., Asheville, NC 28805
