On Friday, May 31, 2019, the Planning and Zoning Administration voted to shut down the ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD Sheltering Tree’s Cold Weather Shelter. THIS IS THE ONLY COLD WEATHER SHELTER THAT EXISTS IN ALL OF FLAGLER COUNTY.

The City gave the shelter 3 months to find a new location without allowing the Sheltering Tree to present their case. Should you need assistance during that time, please contact the Office.
Each Tuesday, The Sheltering Tree is open from 10:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M. to offer those who are currently or nearly experiencing homelessness. Some of the ways we help is by providing,
Emergency food and supplies
Clothing and hygiene products
Information about community resources
Assistance with signing up for, or renewing public assistance programs
Assist with targeted financial assistance
The Sheltering Tree's "Cold Weather Shelter" is operated as a subsidiary of the Flagler County Family Assistance Center, Inc. (FCFAC). It opens anytime the temperature is 40 degrees or lower in Flagler County, as reported by NOAA weather.
Our office is open most Tuesdays, year round to offer emergency supplies and food.
