Ulster County Warming Center OPEN Friday-Monday (1/19-1/22) (7 p.m.-7 a.m.)  

Kingston, NY – As we continue to experience some of the coldest temperatures of the season, Ulster County Executive Mike Hein has activated the County’s warming center hosted by the Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church located at 122 Clinton Avenue in Kingston.  The warming center will be open overnight, 7 p.m. - 7 a.m., Friday through Monday morning (1/19-1/22). The warming center will provide a warm shelter, a hot evening meal and breakfast as well as related services at the Church 24-hours a day.  The center will be staffed by American Red Cross trained volunteers and will welcome homeless adults, ages eighteen and above.

“As temperatures fall far below freezing, individuals without shelter could find themselves in a life or death situation. We are fortunate to be able to partner with the Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church to provide a warming center for some of the most vulnerable members of our local community,” said County Executive Mike Hein. “This ensures that those among us most in need have access to a warm bed, a warm meal, and access to support services that can help when they need it most.”

Any homeless adult is encouraged to go to the warming center or if you know someone who is in a desperate situation or is homeless, they can contact the Family of Woodstock hotline which can be reached 24 hours-a-day at 845-679-2485.
