Warming Centers and Shelters

Click here for a list of warming centers that have been opened throughout the State.  To see if there is a specific center in your community, type in your city, town or location, and hit search. If there is no warming center listed in your town/city, please note that libraries, senior centers and other public locations are good places to keep warm or seek shelter.

You can also search the 2-1-1 database for homeless drop-in centers that can be visited during the day. If you need a homeless shelter, please dial 2-1-1 (available 24/7).

If you are a city/town official and need to update or list a warming center or shelter, please email info@211ct.org with the details and your contact information.
