The Light House Mission is getting ready to help those in need.
Housing organizers say they've already had a few people come in on chilly nights.

"Summer time, they can live in tents, and they can get by with the hot weather, but when it starts getting cold, it's very hard to stay warm and so, as the temperatures drop, the further they drop, the more people we see that needs help here," Light House Mission Director of Development Bonnie Wallace said.
The Mission says it has space now for people in need.
It serves three meals a day to help stretch families' budgets.
However, the Mission is in need of donations.
If you'd like to help, you can drop donations off at Light House Mission or call (812) 232-7001.
