Need a warm place to stay in Huntsville? Here’s where you can go
Published on January 19, 2022
With temperatures expected to drop significantly this week, the City is working with several nonprofit community partners to open three warming centers in Huntsville.
Warming centers will be available to residents at no charge starting 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 20, to 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 22, at the following locations:
- University Baptist Church, 809 Jordan Lane NW (entrance at the back of the church)
- The Downtown Rescue Mission, 1400 Evangel Drive NW
- The Salvation Army, 305 Seminole Drive SW
“We encourage anyone who needs to beat the cold to visit one of our warming centers starting Thursday,” said Community Development Manager Scott Erwin. “With help from our partners First Stop, the North Alabama Coalition for the Homeless (NACH) and Church of the Nativity, we will also be providing meals, sleeping cots and face coverings to help limit the spread of COVID-19.”
Masks are required for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status. Other COVID-19 policies specific to each location will also be enforced.
Residents can also dial 2-1-1, a 24/7 hotline from United Way for individuals and families who need help. In addition to its free call service, 2-1-1 is accessible via text message at 888-421-1266 or online chat at 211ConnectsAlabama.org.
