Leading Community Partner: The Warming Center
March 11, 2016
The Bozeman Warming Center provides shelter to an average of 32 people every night throughout the winter. Of the 188 unique guests this year, approximately 20 percent have been veterans.
The Center welcomes anyone in need, from families with children to single adults and couples. In addition to having trained staff and volunteers on-site at all times during operating hours, the Center provides separate sleeping areas.
We are honored to support the Warming Center as one of our Leading Community Partners through our Deep Roots giving program. Providing a warm, safe place to sleep reduces the risk of lives being lost while sleeping outside in the elements. This important work helps makes our community a stronger, kinder, place for everyone.
The Center, a part of HRDC’s Housing First Program, is 100 percent community funded. Located at 2104 Industrial Drive in Bozeman (corner of Griffin and Industrial), they are open from 7 pm—7 am, seven days per week throughout the winter months (typically November-April).
