Warming Centers for Chicago

Info and Tips to Stay Warm & Safe

During the winter months, the Chicago Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) operates six Warming Centers inside of the City’s six Community Service Centers during work weekdays when temperatures dip below 32 degrees. Additional City facilities including, libraries, police stations or other structures might be made available after hours, on weekends, or on holidays, as conditions warrant. Chicago’s seniors can stay warm when they use our 21 Senior Centers during their regular weekday activities.
