Local organizations are making sure people in the Wiregrass who need assistance get it.
As weather gets colder, the number of people looking for help increases both Dothan Rescue Mission and 211 offer their services 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
Rescue mission officials say it is not just about providing shelter, they also offer classes.
After 4:30 p.m. on weekdays and on week’s 2-1-1 calls will go to the after hours call center in Huntsville. Officials say since it is a statewide initiative they have access to the same database and can provide the same assistance as the local center.
