"I'm afraid of losing her every day of the week," Doug Sutton said.
Sutton is talking about his wife. She's deaf and they're both homeless.
"Basically, we've been sitting up at night at McDonald's," Sutton said. "Between there and bouncing from one Walmart to the other."
When temperatures drop, the stakes get high for people who don't have a home. That's why you'll also find Deb Holman outside.
"It's just a real dangerous time for folks to be on the street," Holman said. "Temperatures that could kill people. There's already been a number of cases of frostbite."
Holman works with CHUM and the Human Development Center. She said four homeless people have already been hospitalized this winter.
"Still don't know if they're going to lose toes, it's been pretty scary," Holman said.
Before the cold snap hit, Holman worked to get people inside. Many people chose to seek shelter, but it's not always easy.
"There's probably a handful there are few options for," Holman said.
Sutton said he and his wife are some of those people and said some things need to change.
"Basically, more low-income housing and if they are going to open shelters it has to be for couples as well as families," Sutton said.
Holman said the new Outreach Hotline has helped her team find new people homeless in Duluth. If you have anything to report, call (218) 461-8505.
