The Harrison City Council has approved an amendment to the lease agreement with the House of Hope organization to allow them to open a Warming Center in their facility on cold nights.

According to information on the House of Hope Facebook page, the center will be available beginning Sunday through the end of February on nights the temperature drops below 32 degrees. The hours of operation those nights will be from 6 pm- 6 am.

Approval of the Harrison City Council was required since the Lease Agreement between the city and House of Hope was for daytime operation only.

More information on House of Hope and the Warming Center can be found on their Facebook Page.
