St. Louis County Executive Announces 24 Hour Cooling Shelter for Summer Months


St. Louis County and the Salvation Army have partnered to provide expanded cooling shelter services this summer.

The shelter, located at 10740 Page in the 63132 zip code, will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week between July 2th and September 7th. The facility can accommodate up to 48 individuals.

“St. Louis County and The Salvation Army are providing professional services to our most vulnerable residents this summer,” County Executive Steve Stenger said. “Aside from providing relief from the heat, anyone using the shelter will have access to the Salvation Army’s array of services including meals, laundry facilities and case management to help those in need find housing.”
