Paul Whaley with the Salvation Army of Clark County staffed the Springfield emergency shelter overnight Sunday night.
With temperatures running dangerously low, workers from local shelters are working overtime to get people in off the streets. While hundreds in the Dayton area are experiencing homelessness, most have found a way to be inside.
The gym at the Salvation Army in downtown Springfield has been turned into a temporary warming center.
“If you don’t have to go out, don’t go out,” said a man who goes only by Dave. He was squatting at an empty house, and made plans to come to the warming center after he read the forecast in the paper.
