It’s no secret that braving winters in Northwest Missouri is a challenge, especially for the homeless population. That’s why several St. Joseph agencies are working to make the frigid cold more manageable for those in need.

While there is not specifically a homeless shelter for adults in town, victims of domestic violence can contact the YWCA, and homeless families can reach out to the Salvation Army for assistance.
