Denver’s McNichols building warming center is open now through Wednesday morning
It’ll be very cold this weekend with a chance of snow Saturday and Sunday.
Denver’s 24/7 warming center at the McNichols building at Civic Center Park has been activated once more as temps are set to drop Friday night and through the weekend.
The building, located at 144 W. Colfax Ave, will be open from Friday through the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Temperatures will drop into the 20s Friday night. The next few days will see highs ranging from the 10s to 30s, and lows ranging from the 10s down to zero degrees Tuesday. We could also get snow Saturday and Sunday.
The Department of Housing Stability (HOST) has said that the building can hold more than 200 people, and that it has a team that works to connect people experiencing homelessness with shelters. People can find open beds at shelters through referral centers across the city.
“In addition, we encourage anyone looking for a short-term place to warm up during the day between Saturday and Wednesday, visit any open recreation center or Denver Public Library branch during regular business hours,” wrote the city in a press release about the upcoming cold weather.
