HARTFORD TO OPEN OVERNIGHT WARMING CENTERS FOR WINTER SEASON
Published on December 01, 2021
HARTFORD, CONN. (December 1, 2021) – The City of Hartford will open its overnight warming centers for the winter season starting today, December 1st, from 6 PM to 7 AM. The warming center will be located at 110 Washington Street, the former location of Adult Education. Managed by the Salvation Army, it will be able to accommodate 50 people.
“We opened emergency warming centers early last week, but now it’s time to open the warming centers for the winter season,” said Mayor Bronin. “The weather's getting colder, and it's important that every Hartford resident has access to warm shelter during the night. These warming centers can be lifesaving for residents experiencing homelessness, and we encourage anyone in need of warmth to go to our center at 110 Washington Street.”
In addition to the warming center at 110 Washington Street, the Salvation Army’s family shelter this year will be located at Milner Elementary School at 104 Vine Street. Families who are in need of shelter should call 211 to receive assistance. 211 will connect families with The Salvation Army for triage and placement as available.
