HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The arctic blast moved in on Thursday and since then, a number of warming centers have opened up their doors to help those in need.
One of those centers is Green House International Church, which has been welcoming people since Wednesday.
"I am very grateful for this help and the pastor and the church for doing this to open their doors, let us in, have somewhere warm where we can sleep and have food," Kyson Graham, who's staying at the center, said.
He's been homeless for three months now, so in preparation for the unbearably frigid temperatures, he made sure to seek shelter.
"We've been here two days together and I love it here," Graham said. "If it wasn't for the pastor here, we would have been out there sleeping and frozen to death."
