“We continue to strengthen our work with homeless people on the city streets. We have opened four more points where you can not only get warm, but also drink hot tea, get warm clothes and learn from the officers on duty how you can get out of a difficult situation with the support of the Center for Social Adaptation. New points are open around the clock in three station areas near Savelovsky, Kazan railway stations and the Central Bus Station, and an additional – already the third – point has appeared on Ilovaiskaya Street (building 2) near the Central Autograph Office. The places were not chosen by chance: it is here that you can most often see homeless people, ”said Oksana Shalygina.

Now there are 12 heating points in Moscow. Eight of them are located in the station areas, three are at the points of urgent social assistance on Ilovaiskaya Street (house 2) on the territory of the E.P. Glinka.
