On nights when the ambient temperature falls below 32 degrees and Springs Rescue Mission is full, overflow shelter is located at the Salvation Army’s Montgomery Center (709 S. Sierra Madre Ave.), which can accommodate 25 individuals. The Montgomery Center will also accommodate families, regardless of temperature. The secondary overflow location is Lighthouse Mobile Ministries (833 S Circle Dr.), which can provide shelter for an additional 25 men.
