Palm Springs will open a homeless shelter that will assist people during the summer.
Starting June 1, the overnight shelter will be provided at the Palm Springs Access Center, 225 El Cielo Road, according to a statement on the city’s website.
The facility near Palms Springs International Airport will operate from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. seven days a week, with its last day scheduled for Sept. 30. Free dinner, breakfast, and hygiene items will be provided, and beds will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The project is a partnership between Palm Springs and Indio-based Martha’s Village and Kitchen, one of the largest providers of shelter and other assistance to homeless people in Riverside County.
Established in 1990, Martha’s Village helps about 8,000 people a year, according to the nonprofit’s website.
