The Rochester Community Warming Center will open its doors by Sunday, December 15th and volunteers are needed. The Warming Center is available to those who are without a home in the cold winter months and will be open every night from 9 PM until 7 AM.

If you would like to volunteer, the Catholic Charities of Southern Minnesota group who puts together the Warming Center, asks that people volunteer in teams. You could form a team with your co-workers, church, friends, etc. One person will be the Community Partner who will decide which two nights a month the group will serve.

Individuals are also welcome to volunteer, anyone who wants to help out at the Warming Center is welcome.
