With temperatures dipping below freezing this weekend, I'm glad that the city is providing a warm place for people who don't have shelter at night: the Warming Center.
The Warming Center is located at 1435 NE 81st Avenue in Portland, just off the MAX Line (near Halsey and 82nd Avenue). It's open every night from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. through March 2010. There are no meals served. It's simply a warm, safe place be in the evening during the winter months.
To reach the warming center, call 503-721-1500.
