Warming shelter open at Christ's Hands in Harlan


HARLAN, Ky. (WYMT) - Whether your home is without power, or the pipes freeze, or even if you don't have a place to call home, Christ's Hands in Harlan is ready to help.

For the next several days, the soup kitchen and homeless shelter will be open 24 hours a day to anyone who needs to get warm.

We hate that it's so cold and that we have these types of conditions, said director Robert Atkins, "but we're very thankful that God has given us an opportunity to have a place like this, that we can show his love and provide warmth and shelter and food for anyone who might need it.

Atkins says he expects as many as 30 people, twice their usual number, could stay at the shelter Monday night.

Area wind chill conditions are right for frostbite and hypothermia, so people are advised to stay indoors as much as possible.
