About Cold Wet Weather Mat Program (CWWMP)
- The CWWMP is an overnight mat program where homeless people in the Tri-Cities can come inside for the night and be given a hot meal, a warm place to sleep, a change of clothes, a bag lunch, and can be assisted in finding resources that can help them get off the streets.
- The CWWMP, operated by the Hope for Freedom Society (HFFS) and hosted by local churches, has been providing a temporary seasonal emergency shelter in the Tri-Cities since 2007. The program operates from October through March and rotates between various churches in the Tri-Cities. This year CA Church will be hosting the CWWMP for the months of December and February.
