Cold Weather Response
During winter months, OTN outreach workers do supply drops, wellness checks, and provide information on accessing evening shelter sites. Evening canvassing will begin at 7 p.m. and focus on the downtown area. We will coordinate pick-up spots in outlying areas. For more information, please email email@example.com or call 615-415-0141.
When temperatures are expected to reach 32 degrees or lower, Metro opens a Cold Weather Shelter at 3230 Brick Church Pike. You can check coldweathernashville.com to see if it will be open (the page is updated daily at 9 a.m.), or call 615-862-6391, or text the word Nashvillewinter to 84483 and you will be texted when the shelter is set to open.
Transportation is provided for free to anyone who needs it. Shelter and Transportation information are detailed below:
How you can help during winter:
- Volunteer with us to canvass downtown. If we have spots available, we’ll post them here. We’ll also post volunteer needs on Facebook and Instagram, so follow us there for the most up to day information!
- Help provide supplies. You can order them from our wishlist, make a monetary donation, or organize a donation drive in your community (email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a drop off at our office).
- Stay Informed. Neighborhood Health has created Winter Shelter and Transportation Info to help people navigate winter shelter options and how to get there for anyone who might need help. We also have an explainer you can download here.
