Operation Chill Out Indoor Heat Relief Project Underway

The Salvation Army of Tucson and the City of Tucson recently launched the new Operation Chill Out Indoor Heat Relief Project, which provides relief for the community in safe, indoor environments and reduces the risk of exposure, dehydration, heatstroke, and other health risks associated with the desert summer.

This project serves those experiencing unsheltered homelessness in the Tucson area. The Salvation Army will provide indoor heat relief stations at three Salvation Army sites that include a preliminary health screening, indoor respite, hygiene and sun safety items, shower facilities, meals (The Salvation Army Hospitality House), snack items (The Salvation Army Amphi Corps Community Center and The Salvation Army Tucson South Corps Community Center), and housing referral service coordination.

Operation Chill Out Indoor Heat Relief Stations are open now and will run through Aug. 31, noon-5 p.m., seven days per week.
