Saratoga Springs issues first Code Blue

SARATOGA SPRINGS -- The Spa City issued its first Code Blue to provide shelter for homeless, less than a week after it established the program.

On December 12, Nancy Pitts, was found dead outside the Senior Center from complications due to the cold temperatures. 

"We've set up quite the organization very quickly. I have the police and fire departments keeping their eyes and ears open, but more importantly it's the non-profit organizations who have been serving this population for quite some time, said Mayor-elect Joanne Yepsen.

The program expects to provide 10-15 people with two meals and a warm bed when the temperature drops below 10 degrees.

They do not want to be part of a structured shelter program necessarily, but that's why code blue is so important. On a cold night these people, they need to come inside, get a warm bed, a warm meal and with no questions asked, said Yepsen.

Code Blue utilizes an auxiliary building at St. Peters Church.

In Christmas Eve gospel Jesus and Mary go to Bethlehem and have no place to stay, they are homeless, but then they stayed in the stable, said Rev. Dominic Ingemie with St. Peters. On Christmas Eve we don't want anybody to be homeless and we've got a place for them.
