Nonprofit to again open winter shelter this year

IOWA CITY — Shelter House in Iowa City will again offer a temporary emergency winter shelter for people who have nowhere to sleep when the weather turns cold.

It’s the fourth straight year the winter shelter house is being run by the nonprofit. It will run the shelter out of an empty county-owned building on south Clinton Street. The county will not charge rent for the space and will continue to pay for utilities.

Mark Sertterh is associate executive director of Shelter House. He says he expects the emergency shelter to begin operations sometime in the first week of December.

In previous years, the shelter has run from mid-December to mid-March.
