Around 90 people have been sleeping each night at the Berkeley Emergency Storm Shelter. But it is slated to close on April 15.
The emergency shelter, which is open until April, offers free Wi-Fi, plenty of places to charge phones, indoor toilets, hot breakfasts and storage.
Seven individuals talk about how they get food and what they eat living on the streets of Berkeley.
On the eve of the closure of Berkeley’s winter homeless shelter at 1231 Second St., the city received an anonymous $15,000 donation to keep it running for at least another month.
The new shelter has storage space, bike racks and takes dogs. Berkeleyside spoke to some of its clients, as well as to others who won’t use shelters.
