TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — With the cold weather starting to hit Tallahassee, many of those experiencing homelessness suffer from finding safe shelters to stay warm, but thanks to places like the Kearney Center, all hope is not lost.

The Kearney Center provides shelter, medical, dental and food for those suffering from homelessness and help those in need, especially during drastic changes in weather.

Audra Peoples, Director of Communications for the Kearney Center, says this is something they prepare for consistently in Tallahassee.

"But during times of inclement weather like right now, we see our numbers rise at the Kearney Center, up to 425 sometimes," said Peoples.

Peoples also says that they continue to ask anyone with unwanted sheets and blankets to consider donating them to the Kearney Center as they continue to prepare for the increased amount of people that need their help.
