Cold weather in the forecast is prompting the Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas to open its overnight emergency centers for those who are without shelter.

The centers are located in Fayetteville and Bentonville and typically open when the forecast is 34 degrees and below.

Temperatures are set to be cold this week, with the lowest temperature being in the teens this week. Cots will be available for the homeless population seeking shelter from the cold temperatures starting Monday night through Friday night.

Lindsey Strong with the Salvation Army said there is no capacity limit and the shelter has seen up to 40 people when the temperatures are very low.

The Fayetteville shelter is located at 219 S. 15th Street and the Bentonville shelter is located at 3305 S.W. “I” Street.
