Mayor Pete Buttigieg on staying warm in freezing temperatures

Not everyone has a place to go when the weather turns cold and those without a home struggle to stay warm. 

In South Bend, the homeless population is even more at risk from the bitter cold temperatures.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg says the city provides places for the homeless to go, but they could do more if they have to.

“I know the weather’s been more severe. We're also seeing the opening of warming centers I think soon to be announced around the city. And we'll see what kind of impact its having. What I will say is, a day like to today is a reminder of why it's so important to get people off the street and into spaces,” said Buttigieg. 

Warming centers for those who need them have been set up across the city for shelters during the recent winter storms.
