Warming Stations Now Open
The Hudson County Winter Emergency System will be in effect continuously from November 15, 2016 - March 31, 2017. The system may also be enacted before or after this time period if the forecast calls for temperatures below 32 degrees.
The intent of the system is to provide shelter for those who seek it, and provide outreach to engage those who typically refuse shelter with the goal of preventing anyone from sleeping on the street throughout the winter months.
