Code Blue in effect for Oliver Gospel Mission

Oliver Gospel Mission

COLUMBIA (WACH) -- The Oliver Gospel Mission is taking extra measure during the cold weather by putting Cold Blue into effect.

When temperatures drop below 40 degrees in the evenings, the mission can add another 32 mats of emergency shelter in their dayroom, in addition to their 100.

Code Blue will also allow the homeless to stay a little later in the morning.

Oliver Gospel Mission has been serving the Midland's homeless for 125 years, making it the oldest rescue mission in the Southeast and the 6th oldest in the United States.
