Mendocino County winter homeless shelters are open — with many restrictions
MENDOCINO CO., 11/30/23 — Winter shelters for the homeless have opened around Northern California or will open by Dec. 1. The City of Fort Bragg, which used to operate a winter shelter program open to all through the local churches and the Hospitality Center, now offers only an “Extreme Weather Shelter” program, operated by the police department. Fort Bragg Police Chief Neil Cervenka emphasizes there is a big difference between an extreme weather-only shelter and a full-time winter shelter. The Emergency Weather Shelter only opens when it is triggered by the weather — and it’s not open to all. Outsiders usually get one night of services, and then the police-run Crisis Response Unit (CRU) tries to get them back home.
