City of Detroit issued the following announcement.

With the forecast calling for frigid temperatures this weekend, the City of Detroit is reminding residents that warming centers and respite locations are open to provide relief from the cold.

The City has three warming centers, in conjunction with two local nonprofit homeless service providers, open from now through March 31. The City of Detroit is contracting with Cass Community Social Services and Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (two locations) to provide temporary relief to persons who are homeless when year-round shelters may be at capacity.

Detroit utilizes a coordinated entry process to access shelters and warming centers. This means those seeking shelter or warming center placements should visit the appropriate access point to meet with a staff member to explore available shelter options.
