When the temperature drops into freezing zone, or successive cold rainy days, Sierra Roots has arranged to open an inclement weather shelter at Pioneer Park in Nevada City. In 2015 we were open for five successive days over Thanksgiving holiday and four over Christmas! 

You Can See the Homeless People Everywhere

Singer/Songwriter Terry Worden shares the experience of when he showed up to work at the overnight cold weather shelter for the homeless folks in Nevada City, California, and was inspired by the way the community, led by Sierra Roots volunteers, served. He went home and wrote a song, "You Can See the People."
