Warming Centers in Clackamas County
Clackamas County contracts with warming center providers for homeless shelter beds on nights when the weather is predicted to be 33 degrees or lower or when other conditions such as accumulated snowfall, high winds, flood watches/warnings or other phenomena make sleeping outdoors especially dangerous.
Homeless adults are the primary demographic that accesses these warming centers, but families with children may also access them. Each site decides by 1:00 p.m. whether or not they will be open based on National Weather Service predictions for their local area. Contact the sites directly to see if they are open on a given day. Clackamas County and 211info post openings as they are confirmed.
