With temperatures below freezing, area shelters are opening their doors to provide a place for people to go.
The Springs Rescue Mission in downtown Colorado Springs will stay open 24/7 this week.
In the Black Forest, Crosses for Losses will also be open. The shelter says if people ever need help outside of their normal hours, they can always call and help will be available.
"We know that our community needs the extra help and support," says Amanda Davis, Director of Crosses for Losses. "We've been here since the beginning of this and we're going to be here even longer if there's people out there that need to get warm."
She says the shelter is simply about neighbors helping neighbors and that no one's pride should ever be at risk when they stop in.
In Pueblo, the Wayside Cross Mission is also open.
