Cleveland homeless shelters are gearing up for an influx of homeless who are seeking warmth as frigid weather sweeps in.

At the old St. Malachi School at W.25th & Detroit, the Metanoia Project expects to serve close to 80 homeless over the next 48 hours.

Tim Walters, executive director, said the homeless began lining up at 7 p.m. Sunday evening.

“The weather we have coming is dangerous,” said Walters.

“It’s life-threatening and if we don’t put them in place–they’re going to die.”

Kevin Smith, who described living under a bridge, is one of those being served at the shelter.

“I used to stay under a bridge,” said Smith, “but push come to shove, you gotta due what you gota do–just try to survive.”
