Palm Springs partners with Martha’s Village and Kitchen to operate Overnight Shelter for unhoused residents

PALM SPRINGS — To assist unhoused residents during the cold weather season, the city of Palm Springs has partnered with Martha’s Village and Kitchen to provide overnight shelter at the Palm Springs Access Center.

The facility, located at 225 El Cielo Road, will have 15 beds available nightly for those in need from now until Feb. 28. Hours of operation will be from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Free dinner, breakfast and hygiene items will also be available.

The partnership is especially timely as rain, wind and cooler temperatures moved into the city.

Beds will be available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 4:30 p.m. daily.

For more information, contact Rosa Verduzco with Martha’s Village and Kitchen at (760) 347-4741, ext. 109.

Founded in 1990, Martha’s Village and Kitchen recently contracted with the city to provide homeless wraparound services at the new access center as well as other assistance that includes case management, helping individuals obtain permanent and supportive housing, health, disability, Social Security and other benefits, along with computer training, and assistance filling out job applications. Showers and laundry service are also available.
