Clinton Avenue Warming Center Open Through Friday Morning 3/24 (6:00 PM–7:00 AM)

Kingston, NY – Ulster County Executive Mike Hein announces that the County’s warming center hosted by the Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church located at 122 Clinton Avenue in Kingston will remain open through Friday morning at 7:00 a.m. (March 24, 2017).  The warming center will provide a warm shelter, a hot evening meal and breakfast as well as related services at the Church between 6:00 p.m. through 7:00 a.m.  The center will be staffed by American Red Cross trained volunteers and will welcome homeless adults, ages eighteen and above.

“Our focus is simple: to be there to help someone who is down on their luck and has no place to turn in their moment of greatest need,” said County Executive Mike Hein.  “We thank the Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church, the American Red Cross, as well as Family of Woodstock for the wonderful resources they provide to some of our residents who are most in need.  Due to the continuation of below freezing temperatures during the overnight hours throughout the week, it is critical that the Warming Center remain open for those without shelter.  During the winter season, I urge residents to visit our website for any updates or notices regarding the warming center or other important information. Notices will appear in the banner at the top of the page at www.ulstercountyny.gov.”

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.
