Warming stations available for residents in need

Posted

Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus reminds residents that both the County Department of Social Services and municipally operated warming centers are available during the winter months.

Senior citizens are at higher risk for hypothermia than other adults. Residents should check on their elderly neighbors, friends, and relatives during the cold weather to make sure their heating systems are working, they are keeping warm and they have supplies and any medicines they need. If you or someone you know needs assistance, please visit the County’s Housing Resource Center (HRC) from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at 280 Broadway in Newburgh, or call Helping Others Needing Our Resources (HONOR), Orange County’s contracted homeless provider, for assistance at 845-343-7115. HONOR, located in Middletown, is open 24 hours a day.

The Orange County Crisis Call Center is available to individuals who have Substance Use Disorders, Developmental Disabilities, and/or Mental Illness and their loved ones.

Several municipalities in Orange County will provide warming centers and outreach for those in need. Those locations include, but are not limited to:

Newburgh Warming Station, located at Newburgh Ministry on 13 Bridge Street: Scheduled to open on Wednesday, December 1; Phone: 845-561-0070.
