Warming centers

Severe weather tips
Prepare, be aware and take care.

Inclement weather tips for older adults and people with disabilities.

Clackamas County supports a network of severe weather warming center providers for homeless persons on nights when the weather is predicted to be 33 degrees or lower (including wind chill) or when other conditions (snow, wind, flooding or other phenomena) make sleeping outdoors especially dangerous.

Each site decides by 1 p.m. whether or not they will be open based on predictions for their local area. 211info posts openings as confirmed.

Persons experiencing homelessness do not need to call ahead, just show up at the site most accessible to them.

Hot drinks and sleeping mats or cots are available at all centers. Meals are offered as available.
