Warming Centers and Shelters

If you or someone you know is in urgent need of shelter, please dial 2-1-1 for emergency support and connection to shelter (available 24/7).

**If there is no warming center or shelter listed in your town, libraries and other public locations can be good places to keep warm or seek shelter. However, many locations are still closed or have limited hours due to the COVID-19 pandemic and it is strongly advised to CALL AHEAD to any location to confirm they are open.

If you are a city/town official and need to update or list a warming center or shelter, please email with the details and your contact information.
