Warming centers

We contract with warming centers to open the doors on nights when the National Weather Service predicts temperatures or other conditions make sleeping outdoors especially dangerous.

Homeless adults access these warming centers, and families with children may also access them.

Contact the shelter to see if they are open on a given night.

You do not need a reservation to access a warming center. Simply show up at the site most accessible to you. Hot drinks, food and sleeping mats or cots are available at all centers.
