Ulster County Warming Center Will Re-Open This Weekend
After a week where temperatures were kind of all over the place, it seems that below freezing temperatures with a chance of snow are in store for parts of the Hudson Valley this weekend. For individuals who may find themselves left out in the cold, Ulster County wants all of its residents to know that they have your back.
If you or someone you know is homeless, or you find yourself in a desperate situation this weekend, don't take a chance by staying out in these frigid temperatures, head to Ulster County's Warming Center, hosted by the Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church.
According to Ulster County Executive Mike Hein, the center will be open from 7 pm to 7 am beginning tonight and will remain open every night through 7 am on Monday, February 19. American Red Cross trained volunteers will staff the center which is open to any homeless adult, 18 years or older to come in and take shelter from the cold. The Family of Woodstock will also provide resources for those in need.
In addition, the Warming Center will provide a hot meal in the evening and breakfast in the morning. If you need additional help, please call 845-679-2485.
