People Experiencing Homelessness

Mayo Civic Center is Providing 24 hour Shelter for People Experiencing Homelessness 

The Mayo Civic Center’s Exhibition Hall will be used as a temporary shelter while businesses and other community gathering places remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

During the open hours, individuals or families experiencing homelessness will have access to the space, as well as food, water and bathrooms.

Food will be provided by Channel One, the Salvation Army, The Landing, and local restaurants, coordinated by Powers Ventures.

The library is providing books and the Mayo Civic Center is providing WiFi for visitors.

Olmsted County is paying for hotel rooms to shelter people most at risk related to the spread of COVID-19.
