The deadline to phase out the 24-hour warming station at the Cranston Street Armory in Providence, Rhode Island has been pushed back, according to R.I. Housing Secretary Stefan Pryor and Amos House CEO Eileen Hayes. The station was established last winter to provide temporary shelter for homeless people.
