City Extends Warming Shelter Through April, Conducts Public Survey About Homelessness

The City of Norman’s Warming Shelter, located at 325 East Comanche Street, will remain open from 7 p.m. through 7 a.m. nightly through April. The shelter has a maximum capacity of 35 guests and is currently averaging 20 guests per night. Answers to frequently asked questions about shelter rules and safety can be found here.

The City of Norman is also conducting a Gaps Analysis of the homeless system of care in Cleveland County to help identify existing strengths, barriers, and areas of need for the City of Norman and the Continuum of Care (CoC). This process will help identify goals and set priorities for housing and services needed by individuals and families most affected by economic insecurity and homelessness in the county. As part of this process, we are gathering feedback from community members and stakeholders through an online survey.

The deadline for the survey is Friday, April 9. Paper copies can be filled out at City Hall, 201 W. Gray Street.
