A new warming shelter’s opened in Madras. It’s in a vacant building that hasn’t been used recently located at 813 Southwest Highway 97. Madras city officials say the city’s leasing the building to the Jefferson County Faith Based Network for a dollar a month. The almost two thousand square foot building will be able to house far more in need of shelter than the church gym and church garage the organization had been using. It’s open from 6 pm - 7 am, and has been housing up to 15 people since it opened January 9th.
