When the temperature falls below 45 degrees, homeless shelter Grace Marketplace is filled over its capacity. The shelter offers 22 beds in the facility’s indoor shelter. Individuals who do not meet the requirements for indoor shelter can stay on bunks in the shelter’s pavilion. On these cold nights, the shelter also allows clients to stay inside the welcome center.
