Determination of Operating Nights and Hours

The RLC Warming Shelter’s contract with the the City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ) requires the shelter to be open when the predicted temperature (as determined on the prior day at noon) to be below 32° by this NOAA website.  However, RLC may decide may decide to open additional nights.  It is required to be open by 11 pm, however we regularly open at 10:30 pm, and may open as early as 8 pm in cases of extreme weather.  We close by 7 am in the morning in order to assist the patrons in getting CBJ transit buses or other shuttle services.
