Warming Center Program ensures that no one has to sleep outside on the worst nights of winter.
There are far too few traditional shelter beds and not everyone can access them when and where they need to. On nights of extreme temperature and rain, we create the opportunity for everyone who needs it, to seek warm, clean, safe and dignifying shelter. With grant support from Santa Cruz County, EFSP and Kaiser Permanente, we've been able to place a highest priority on people with mobility and mental health challenges.
Emergency Information Hotline: (831) 246-1234

Warming Center Program is a volunteer based, community funded program
We're only able to provide the level of service equal to the amount of community support that we get
