White Flag Initiative
When temperatures dip below freezing in our community, Emergency Shelters across the region go above and beyond their capacity to bring people inside to stay safe and warm in hazardous winter conditions. This initiative is called White Flag. White Flag season starts on November 1 and ends and March 31st. Each month, agencies report how many clients they served above capacity on each White Flag night.
