Camden County Warming Centers

Below is a screenshot of the Warming Centers listed with the DHSS. For more information, please visit their website.

Per the DHSS:

Winter weather is upon us and can be potentially hazardous as Missouri typically experiences periods of extreme cold during the winter. It is important to be prepared!

As a friendly reminder, the interactive map of  Warming Center Sites in Missouri, is accessible to the public on the department’s website.  It is mobile friendly and searchable by county. On the map, each warming center site indicates their address, phone number, hours of operation, whether the site is ADA accessible and if transportation is provided to the site.

This interactive map is a collaborative effort between DHSS and United Way 2-1-1 and is updated in real time as the most accurate and up to date information regarding warming centers is received from our state-wide partners. If you have knowledge of a warming center in your area that is not represented on the map, please reach out me or provide the site coordinator with my contact information. Alternatively, you can provide this information to United Way 2-1-1 of St. Louis.

It is important to remember that the extreme cold can affect everyone, but can be especially dangerous to small children, the elderly and the chronically ill. Warming centers provide a warm, safe place for people to go during cold weather. More resources can be found on our Hypothermia  webpage.

Please share this great resource widely.
