Atlanta Taking Calls for Warm Shelter

ATLANTA -- The City of Atlanta has set up a special hotline to help residents who don't have heat or warm place to stay as the temperatures plummet.

City officials also want to hear from faith-based organizations and nonprofit organizations that are willing to open their doors as shelters.

"We've already heard from some of our seniors who are in trouble," said Constituent Services Commissioner Andrea Boone. "It's going to get even colder tonight. We have to make sure we take care of our people."

The Mayor's Office of Constituent Services plans to man the hotline (404) 330-6023 until 11 p.m. Monday.
