James Bremer said he used to sleep curled up in a downtown doorway this winter until some people from Father’s House, a church in downtown Longview, discovered him.
"They gave me food and told me about this place," Bremer, 58, said Monday morning outside the Daily Living Essential Cafe and Extreme Weather Center at 1335 11th Ave., Longview.
The Extreme Weather Center, which is open all night during freezing weather, is operated by volunteers from Love Overwhelming, a multi-denominational nonprofit ministry.

Wednesday was just one of those days you can’t stay inside..So Justin Flint of Longview, and his children Heidi, 4, and Kedrick,2, didn’t even try to. They headed for a walk and run along the sun-dappled paths at Lake Sacajawea in Longview, Wash.
