Washtenaw County Winter Warming Centers
Daytime and Overnight Winter Warming Centers
In cooperation with OCED and other organizations throughout Washtenaw County, the Shelter Association of Washtenaw County (SAWC) is providing emergency shelter for homeless individuals during the winter months.
For access to the daytime or overnight warming centers, each client must call Housing Access of Washtenaw County (HAWC) and obtain a referral to the Delonis Center. More information is available by calling HAWC at (734) 961-1999 or visiting www.housingaccess.net. If you are seeking shelter after 5 pm, there will be onsite assistance provided at the Delonis Center (312 W Huron St, Ann Arbor).
Please note that due to COVID-19 our sheltering options may change. Information will be updated as needed.

Overnight Warming Centers
Due to COVID-19, shelter space is limited this year. If you need shelter and it is possible to safely stay with family or friends, we encourage you to do so.
The Delonis Center (312 W Huron Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48103) offers an overnight warming center for those experiencing homelessness.
Shelter is available beginning at 8:30 pm every night between November 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021.
The Delonis Center is also providing an option for ensuring homeless individuals throughout the county are able to travel to the warming center after 5 PM and on weekends. Please call 734-662-2829, ext. 238 for transportation to the overnight warming center.
Winter Weather Havens
During extreme weather there will be additional shelter locations open during the day. The list of locations will be posted on this site and updated regularly.
