Union County Warming Station
We had a successful 2021-2022 season.
We look forward to next season
Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering.
Our mission is to provide a welcoming, safe, and compassionate place where all people can stay the night and are offered resources and pathways toward housing stability.
The Union County Warming Station is a volunteer-run effort to preserve the life and health of those with no place to sleep during cold Union County winters. We offer safe and warm sleeping accommodations overnight during the winter months as well as food and warm drinks.

Volunteer with Us
The UCWS is only possible because of volunteers! Folks in our community show up for the those in need by staying the night at the station to keep the doors open, making meals, sitting on our board of directors and so much more.
If you are 18 years of age or older and interested in working shifts at the Warming Station, we need your help!
If you are interested in lending a hand in other ways such as: laundry, fundraising, strategic planning, cleaning, cooking meals or some thing else, let us know!
You can also contact us with questions about volunteering at email@example.com
