Over 6,600 visits made to daytime Winter Warming Station this past season.

With limited options for shelter this winter, men and women risked injury or death from the cold. Each the Catholic Charities daytime Winter Warming Station doors were opened and a visitor walked in, we shared what we could. The result: We shared warmth, companionship, and safety 6,655 times this season!

Thank you to those who ensured we could welcome each guest with warm meals, provisions to stay safe and an open invitation to come in permanently from the cold when they’re ready.
