PASCO, Wash. — With temperatures warming up and summer in full swing, a local organization is working to help people experiencing homelessness.
With 100-degree temperatures already here, people who are homeless are in a tough position with nowhere to go to escape the heat. The Tri City Union Gospel Mission is working to help by opening its cooling centers.
"During the time that they use our cooling station, we are able to build relationships with them and show them a safe place that many people don't have. So it provides trust and ensures a safe place," said Women and Children's Director, Kaitlyn Wormington.
At these cooling centers, people can enjoy air conditioning, bottled water and snacks.
The shelter also offers community showers daily from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
