  • Detroit Rescue Mission ministries location in Highland Park added

With frigid temperatures already here, the City of Detroit is reminding residents that warming centers and respite locations are open to provide relief from the cold.

The City has four warming centers, in conjunction with two local nonprofit homeless service providers, open from now through March 31. The City of Detroit is contracting with Cass Community Social Services and Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (three locations) to provide temporary relief to persons who are homeless when year-round shelters may be at capacity. The Pope Francis Center also operates a day center at the TCF Center.

Detroit utilizes a coordinated entry process to access shelters and warming centers. During Coordinated Assessment Model (CAM) hours of operation, those seeking shelter or warming center placements should call to talk with a staff member to explore available shelter options. Due to COVID-19, the access points have moved from in-person to a call line.  Please contact the Coordinated Assessment Model (CAM) at (313) 305-0311 Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. or Saturday. 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Veterans should call (313) 576-1580 Sunday – Saturday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. CAM staff will assist to explore alternatives to shelters or make shelter placement for the night. Outside of CAM hours of operation or on holidays, those seeking shelter should come in person to one of the following warming center locations:
