While DeKalb enjoys the diversity of four distinct seasons, our winters can produce extreme temperatures. At times, weather conditions may pose a threat to health and safety. Bitter cold temperatures are more than an inconvenience; they pose a serious threat to health and safety.
Protect Yourself and Family:
Warming Centers are heated facilities where any resident can go during periods of extreme cold temperatures to stay warm and safe. Agencies that volunteer their facilities as Warming Centers work to make visitors comfortable.
The below buildings are available as Warming Centers during their normal operational hours.
DeKalb Senior Center
If the above Warming Centers are closed, Hope Haven is a no turn away shelter.
