The Shelter is served by the Shelter Site Church and volunteers from the community. If you are interested in volunteering for Code Blue more information can be found here. AHTN is grateful to our local faith community for donating space to house the shelter.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our shelter location will remain the same for the entire 2020-2021 Code Blue season. Thank you to our friends at Calvary Baptist Church for working with us so that we can continue to provide shelter this winter.
Advocates for Homeless & Those in Need (AHTN) started the Code Blue Mission in the Winter of 2009. This mission provides transportation, a hot meal and a cot for the night when weather conditions become dangerous to unsheltered individuals. This year we will start our 12th Code Blue Shelter Season. Code Blue runs from December 1st, 2020 to March 31st, 2021.
AHTN refers to those we serve as guests and friends. They are treated with respect and dignity.
