Code Blue

The Western New York Coalition for the Homeless Code Blue Collaborative is preparing for the busy season.

“Code Blue” is Buffalo’s emergency weather safety plan that provides outreach, transportation, shelter and a warm meal to Buffalo’s homeless population on evenings when temperatures and wind chill fall to 15 degrees or below.

It runs from November 15 to March 15.

Last year, Code Blue served almost 600 people and has reduced the weather-related death rate among Buffalo’s homeless population to zero for the past two years.
