Hope Ministries operating "Project WARM"

After a snowy start to the week, the weather in Michiana continues to feel a lot like it’s expected to during this time of the year and for some people in our area, the brutal temperatures are a deadly threat.

Hope Ministries opened its doors late Monday night to 28 homeless people in Michiana on the eve of one of the coldest nights of the season.

“This is brutal conditions. I wouldn’t want to be outside. I don’t know this is weather that kills people,” said Neil Taylor, an employee at Hope Ministries.

According to Hope Ministries Facebook page, the Project Warm outreach gives Michiana’s less fortunate a place to sleep during the coldest times of the year in South Bend.

Taylor urges people to come early to secure a spot.

“I anticipate turning some people away. We have had to turn some people away but not tonight, tonight it says we got 28 people here, so we’ve got two beds spare,” said Taylor.
