Local church providing overnight shelter to homeless

With more rain in the forecast, those without a home tonight can find shelter at the First United Methodist Church in Lompoc.

The church is part of Santa Barbara County's Warming Shelter program. Organizers provide the homeless with a hot meal and a warm place to spend the night.

"Our protocol is if there's a better than 50 percent chance of rain or temperatures below 35, we'll open the shelter as an emergency warming shelter for homeless people who just need a place to get out of the weather and be safe for the night," said Reverend Steve Petty.

The church will open its doors for anyone in need tonight at 9 p.m.
