Glens Falls Code Blue provides emergency overnight shelter to homeless people in the Greater Glens Falls Area when temperatures outside are 32 degrees or colder. Each season we serve 50-60 homeless individuals. We are in need of volunteers to fill shifts at the Code Blue shelter, provide meals for Code Blue, and drive the Code Blue Shuttle. The following Code Blue Training Dates are available: November 10, 22 & 29 from 6:30pm-8:30pm @ the Open Door Kitchen, and November 12 from 9am-12pm @ CentrePoint Ministries building, which includes FREE Narcan treatment training from 11am-12pm.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are offered at The Open Door each weekday. We feed 300 students in 10 area schools every weekend through our Back Pack Program.
