Detroit residents looking to get out of the cold can go to three warming centers, the City of Detroit’s11 recreation centers and 18 Detroit Public Library branches.

Three warming centers are open through March 31 to provide relief to the homeless when year-round shelters are at capacity.

  • Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries has 100 beds for men only. The center, 3535 Third Avenue near downtown Detroit, is open from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. For information, contact the Detroit Rescue Mission at (313) 993-6703.
  • Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries has a second location with 25 beds for women and children only. The center, 3840 Fairview between Mack and St. Jean, is open from 4:30 p.m. to 9 a.m. For information on this location, contact the Detroit Rescue Mission at (313) 331-8990.

Detroit utilizes a coordinated entry process for access to shelters and warming centers.

Those experiencing homelessness or are in need of emergency shelter should call the CAM Call Center at (313) 305-0311. Families with children will be directed to the Southwest Solutions Housing Resource Center at 1600 Porter St. from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., where staff will assist in exploring alternatives to shelter or determining a shelter placement for the night.

The three facilities will operate daily during the cold weather months including holidays. The locations combined are expected to accommodate up to 165 persons at a time. During extreme cold, services will be extended to include daytime hours.

Clients may be picked up by vans from organizations that offer outreach services or be referred by other homeless agencies. Upon entering the warming center, clients are expected to complete the intake process for admission.

All individuals are supervised at all times to ensure the safety and security. They are also provided with two hot meals, counseling, showering and sleeping accommodations. Clients are also encouraged to take advantage of other support services, such as referrals, housing assistance, health screening, and other related services.

For more information regarding the warming centers, call (313) 224-9974.

Residents can also visit any of the city’s recreation centers or Detroit Public Library branches to get warm during regular hours of operation at these facilities.
