Tahoe Coalition for the Homeless hosting open house

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Community members will have an opportunity to tour the South Shore’s only seasonal overnight emergency shelter and learn more about the services provided to individuals suffering from homelessness on Thursday, Feb. 7.

Tahoe Coalition for the Homeless, a nonprofit that operates the shelter, is hosting an open house at the South Lake Tahoe Warm Room from 3-6 p.m.

This is the fourth season on South Shore for the Warm Room, which provides overnight shelter and a warm environment for approximately 25 adult men and women who are experiencing homelessness.

The event will begin with tours of the Warm Room, located at 1201 Emerald Bay Road, from 3 to 5 p.m.

After the tour, attendees are encouraged to head next door to Ernie’s Coffee Shop for light refreshments and a 5:15 p.m. presentation to honor our community’s first responders.

“We value our relationships with all of our community partners, but we are particularly proud of the excellent relationships we have with the community’s first responders,” Dr. Marissa Muscat, TCH’s executive director, said in a press release.

“These hard working women and men deal with the homeless community in the most difficult situations. Their compassion, professionalism, good humor and simple kindness makes a tremendous difference in the lives of those experiencing homelessness and in our ability to operate effectively.”
