Duval: City Rescue Mission: Conducting Inclement Weather Shelter on Thursday and Friday. They'll allow people to check in after 4 p.m. and we will not turn anyone away (exception- if they have a No Trespass on someone, this is a legally binding contract and we cannot breach that, therefore that person cannot be allowed to stay). Once they meet bed capacity upstairs then they will make mats out of blankets on the dining room floor for EMS men and for EMS women, they will move the chairs in the Women Center and allow people to sleep on the floor there as well.
