The Source to Open Doors Overnight for Refuge From the Cold


Generally, when the temps descend to under 60 degrees, the facility, located at 1015 Commerce Avenue in Vero Beach (located behind Staples on US 1) will open. Guests should plan to arrive and register between 9:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. No arrivals after 11:00 p.m. will be accepted. However, due to the Covid Restrictions and social distancing, The Source will only be able to provide beds for up to 15 people. This is on a first come, first serve basis. A meal will be served.

For those in the community who wish to offer aide, donations would be sincerely appreciated. In addition to monetary donations, the facility is currently in need of blankets, jackets, pillows, and sweaters.
