Inter-Faith Ministries is reopening their shelter due to the cold weather expected this week.

In a statement released Monday, Inter-Faith Ministries said that the shelter will be open from 6 p.m. -7 a.m. from April 3- 6.

No meals will be served during these hours and employees are advising anyone who comes to the shelter to eat before arriving.
