Emergency Warming Centers provide temporary shelter for those who are impacted by 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 and children). Other shelter services may be found by calling the 24-hour MIFA hotline at 901-529-4545.
