On its Facebook page, the Mission said its “Stay Warm, Stay Safe” program features a new Winter Warming Shelter, open on White Flag days from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

White Flag Days are days when the air temperature or wind chill factor is 32 degrees or lower.

Rescue Mission President and CEO Tracy Gorman said the new shelter is inside a tent provided by the Evansville Police Department.

It’s on the Main Campus of the Mission, on Walnut St., and is available for men, women, and children during the hours of operation.

The Mission also said it’s partnering with the community White Flag program at the CK Newsome Center for overnight lodging options.
