Code Blue

Advocates for Homeless & Those in Need (AHTN) started the Code Blue Mission in the Winter of 2009. This mission provides transportation, a hot meal and a cot for the night when weather conditions become dangerous to unsheltered individuals. This year we will start our 10th Code Blue Shelter Season. Code Blue runs from December 1st, 2018 to March 31st, 2019. AHTN refers to those we serve as guests and friends. They are treated with respect and dignity.
