The project helped a total of 1,418 people, including 1,320 men and 98 women, with shelter for 91 nights. An average of 15-people per night.

More than 800 volunteers contributed 7-thousand hours to organize and operate the program.

If help is needed again, plans for next Winter would begin in the early fall. Volunteers are planning to do surveys of homeless people this fall to help identify factors contributing to homelessness.
