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.

Currently, Code Blue does NOT have a home for the 2017-2018 winter season. The previous locations where it was hosted are no longer available.

The GOOD NEWS? Through the generosity of donors, we were able to purchase a location downtown on Warren Street, which will become the new home for all of The Open Door services to the community.

Phase I of renovations are needed immediately to focus on the Code Blue shelter portion of the new building so we have a home to open it in on November 15th. We need your help to make this happen. Please consider giving generously, today.

Cold winters put a strain on our resources.  We thank our community for their generosity in helping their homeless neighbors.

Donations may be dropped off at our 47 Lawrence St. location weekdays between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm.
