FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- As temperatures plummet, the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission on 404 East Washington Boulevard is the City's primary warming center.

If it becomes full, the Mission will work with its partners to find a place for people to stay.

President and CEO Donovan Coley says anyone come to warm their fingers and fill their bellies.

"Regardless of where the person is coming from, if they are in need and if they want to get out of the elements, especially as the temperature falls, this is the City's warming shelter," Coley said.

Anyone who needs shelter should go through the Mission's community entrance near Matthew 25 from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m.
