The extreme cold is a major concern for the homeless.  To help keep them safe Emmanuel House Homeless Shelter in Providence will remain open until Sunday.

Anyone can stop by the shelter at 239 Public Street, Providence.

They have food, drink and a place for people to sleep and stay warm.

"If you find somebody out there homeless in this weather by all means day or night drop them off find a police officer they can drop them off.  We won't turn anybody away they can come here get a hot meal a hot shower warm clothing," said Dotty Perreault, Emmanuel House Dir. 

"It doesn't matter who you are what you do or anything else get off the street get in a shelter somewhere anywhere I don't care where, but just get inside because you are going to die if you don't," said Scott Gage.

The shelter typically holds about 35 people, but the director says it will go well over that number during the extreme cold.
