The Salvation Army Southern Nevada is reopening their day shelter and cooling station beginning July 13.

The facility, located at 35 W. Owens Avenue, will be open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily.

While in the shelter, clients will be able to come in, take showers, do laundry and stay hydrated. The shelter will adhere to CDC and social distancing guidelines. Up to 50 men and 20 women will be allowed into the space at one time.

There will be a rotating schedule so that everyone stays cool and, at the same time, there are not too many people in the confined space.

In addition to the services available at the shelter – showers and laundry – it is vital to provide hydration for those coming out of the excessive desert heat. Bottled water is again in very short supply and the community’s help is necessary to replenish the dwindling supplies.

Cases and pallets of water may be brought to the Owens Campus, west of Main Street, any day between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
