At 10 p.m. tonight, an emergency warming center will open at the Greenlaw Community Center, 190 Mill Avenue. The center will close tomorrow morning at 7 a.m.
Starting at 9:30 p.m. tonight, persons needing a ride to the warming center can call (901) 297-1680. An Emergency Warming Center is a temporary facility for those in need of a place for respite from the cold weather. The warming center is not intended to replace the services provided by a shelter.
Openings are available at local shelters for anyone who is in need of a full service shelter. Those seeking shelter accommodations are encouraged to seek assistance from our partners at the Union Mission (Men’s Shelter), 901-526-8403 or The Salvation Army (Women or women with children).
Other shelter services may be found by calling the 24 hour Metropolitan Inter Faith Association (MIFA) Hotline at (901) 529-4545.
