Find a Chicago area warming center near you

Chicago area winters can be brutal. When temperatures dip down to dangerous levels, it's a good idea to know where you can get warm.

Warming centers open each year for people who do not have access to heat and need a safe place to go.

Call 311 or check out this online map to find a warming center near you, especially during off hours and weekday holidays, when the six Department of Family and Support Services warming centers below are not usually open.

In extreme conditions, hours and days may be extended and other city facilities may be designated as temporary warming center.
