Father Joe's Villages is a San Diego landmark and leader in transitional housing in Southern California.

Father Joe's Villages threw open its doors to additional homeless people in downtown San Diego Monday because of the cold and wet weather conditions.

The homeless services agency began checking people in late Monday afternoon for an overnight stay at St. Vincent de Paul Village at 1501 Imperial Ave.

Those being admitted will receive a meal and a mat to sleep on. They'll be discharged at 5 a.m. Tuesday, according to Father Joe's Villages.

The organization already serves around 1,500 people daily, including more than 200 children and 200 military veterans.

According to the National Weather Service, the chance of overnight rain in downtown San Diego is 90 percent and is expected to tail off in the early morning hours of Tuesday. The low temperature is expected to be 45 degrees.
