ST. CLOUD - The Place Of Hope in St. Cloud is giving area homeless people a safe place to stay warm during the day.

Pastor Carol Smith says they normally aren't open for drop-ins during the day.  She says they open their doors once the temperature drops below 10 degrees.

The Place Of Hope runs the "Church Of The Week" overnight shelter program, where people check-in at 5:00 p.m., are served a meal, then are brought to an area church overnight.

The Place Of Hope is at 511 9th Avenue North in St. Cloud.
