Warming Centers

The pilot warming center on Grand Avenue in Duluth was a great success last year. About 20 people a night without housing took advantage of it over the 29 nights temperatures dipped below 0.  But this year, it won't be open.  Code violations have sidelined the building for the time being, but in this case, when one door (or warming center) closes, several other new options will open: and it won't have to be quite as cold before those doors open, either.
