HARTFORD — Cold weather is expected. And the capital city wants to help keep the homeless warm during the chill.
Hartford officials will have day-time warming centers and an overnight warming center open this week.
The overnight warming center will be at the Arroyo Recreation Center, and it will be open from 7 p.m. – 7 a.m. beginning tonight through the morning of Saturday, Nov. 16.
“We’re opening an overnight warming center this week given the drop in temperatures we expect,” Mayor Luke Bronin said. “We are working with our non-profit partners to make sure people who may be out in the cold know there is a warm place for them to go at night.”
