BROWNSVILLE, Texas – This week’s drop in temperatures are causing many shelters in the Rio Grande Valley to open their doors. The Ozanam Shelter in Brownsville is just one of the many shelters open to people looking for a warm place to stay. When people get to the shelter they are given warm clothing, blankets and warm meals.

No matter what the weather conditions are like, the shelter is always open.

Victor Maldonado, Ozanam Center Director, “We open for all those families and individuals that don’t have a place to sleep. Especially like today, the cold weather or when it’s raining. Our doors are open at all times.”

Other shelters opening across the Valley include Loaves and Fishes in Harlingen, the Salvation Army in McAllen, the First Baptist Church in Weslaco and the Mercedes Dome in the city of Mercedes.
