From Nov. 18, 2018, through April 4, 2019, the warming station in Middletown provides a warm and safe environment for homeless adults living on the streets in Middletown.

The warming station is open nightly from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., and will only admit those in need until 9:30 p.m.

Men and women are encouraged to volunteer overnight to help supervise Middletown homeless men and women who have been screened for suitability. If you wish to volunteer, please see our volunteer page (

Our goals are:

• To get folks to volunteer to spend the night at the warming station

• To get folks to donate items for people in need at the warming station

• To have folks give money to support the warming station

Donate items: it will really help. Give money: you are making a difference.

We've all been on the receiving end of a generous and giving heart. Be the kind stranger. Be a part of making someone's life better. Be our good neighbor.
