At last check in January of this year, there were more than 500 homeless people living in Potter and Randall counties.
And the Salvation Army filled up as the blizzard rolled in.
"The feeling they get on their face, it's very cold. They couldn't even see. I mean you see their hair, I mean covered with snow, I mean it's really bad. I mean, there was two or three of them that came in early this morning and we had to immediatley give blankets because they walked miles to get here," Kenny Freeman, Salvation Army Operations Manager said.
Freeman showed up last night along with several other staff members to make sure they could help those in need of a warm place to stay.
Monday morning, The Salvation Army was busy with more than 200 people seeking shelter from the cold.
"The conditions outside are hazardous. People can die out there," Don Schneider, who's staying at the Salvation Army said. "I'm really grateful for places like this that, that do open the doors for people that don't have and do need an opportunity to get back on their feet."
Tracie Teague and her three children just came to The Salvation Army last week, without any other place to go. Her children have never seen a blizzard before. When the brutal weather came in, the family was glad to have a place to stay.
"It raises the worry to a different level. So it's kind of a blessing that we're here," Teague said.
Salvation Army officials say, they won't turn anyone away. People are welcome to stay as long as the bad weather continues.
They have 100 extra cots on hand for events like these.
