Several cities offer emergency shelters when temps dip sharply. 

Those include Ashland, which can house some homeless people on especially cold nights. 

The Ashland Community Resource Center coordinates that and other services. 

Tina Stevens from the Center staff and Bill Voss, who has used its services, join us to explain ACRC's workings.
