After temps in the low 50’s and a flood watch for the Hudson Valley, Old Man Winter is coming back to our area this week and as a result, the temperatures are going to take a bit of a nose-dive. When you factor in wind gusts in the mid-twenties, things could get dangerous for those who find themselves left out in the cold. Ulster County wants all of its residents to know that they have your back.

If you or someone you know is homeless, or you find yourself in a desperate situation this weekend, don't take a chance by staying out in these frigid temperatures, head to Ulster County's Warming Center, hosted by the Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church.

According to Ulster County Executive Mike Hein, the center will be open from 7 pm to 7 am through this Saturday, January 27. American Red Cross trained volunteers will staff the center which is open to any homeless adult, 18 years or older to come in and take shelter from the cold. The Family of Woodstock will also provide resources for those in need.

In addition, the Warming Center will provide a hot meal in the evening and breakfast in the morning. If you need additional help, please call 845-679-2485.
