Glens Falls Code Blue

Glens Falls Code Blue provides emergency overnight shelter to homeless people in the Greater Glens Falls Area.

A Code Blue night is called when the forecast is for a temperature of 32 degrees or lower (including wind chill) or at least 12 inches of precipitation.

Location

Currently, we are in the midst of Phase 1 renovations at our new building.  Since the previous location is no longer available we are looking forward to getting those renovations completed so that the Code Blue program has a permanent home.  

With renovations still in progress, and since the temperature is falling below 32 degrees on some nights we have decided to open a warming station at our kitchen facility.  Between 10 pm and 8 am guests are welcome to come into our soup kitchen and stay warm.

The Warming Station is a temporary solution to the cold temperatures. We are eagerly looking to having our Code Blue program in the new building and could still use your help to make this happen.  Please consider giving generously, today.

  • filling shifts at the shelter when we're open
  • providing meals for Code Blue guests on the days the Open Door Kitchen is closed
  • If you would like to volunteer at the shelter,  email jamie@opendoor-ny.org . There is MANDATORY training for all volunteers and staff. We are in need of volunteers to fill shifts at the Code Blue shelter and to provide meals for Code Blue.
