Winter Month Warming Shelters Open

. January 3, 2018.

For the fourth year, the City of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County will jointly fund both warming centers and havens for the city’s homeless population during severe cold weather. The Delonis Center will serve as an overnight warming center capable of sheltering up to 50 people in its dining room and common areas from 7pm – 7am and area churches will be available as daytime warming centers throughout the winter. For people needing to escape adverse cold conditions (real or wind chill air temperature at 20 degrees or below) before continuing on to their destination, temporary weather havens in highly traveled areas will be available for all Washtenaw County residents.

For locations of both daytime warming centers and temporary weather havens, call 734-344-5762 or visit ewashtenaw.org
