It surprises many that in our little Shangri-La of Salida, CO there are many adults, children and families experiencing homelessness. But rarely a night goes by without several people needing a place to sleep.

This winter Chaffee County Hospitality Inc. (formerly known as the Chaffee County Homeless Coalition) will operate two shelters–one for men and one for women. Families will be lodged in local motels with limits on length of stay. Shelters will be open from 8:30 p.m. – 8:30 a.m. and will operate from November 1st – April 30th.

CCHI is seeking to raise $76,000, which will be used to pay the night staff, purchase motel vouchers, sleeping bags and pads, tents and other cold weather supplies as needed.

Two ways to donate:
1. Through checks payable to Chaffee County Hospitality Inc. and mailed to the First Presbyterian Church, 7 Poncha Blvd., Salida, CO 81201.
2. Through Go Fund Me: https://www.gofundme.com/f/salida-colorado-overnight-winter…

Salida is a caring community and the CCHI board thanks you for your generous donations.
