2020 Cold Wet Weather Mat Program 

The CWWMP is an overnight mat program where homeless peopel 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 fiding 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 Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship will be hosting the CWWMP for the month of March.
