The City of South Bend is making a neighborhood recreation center available as a supplemental warming center for those in need of shelter during this week’s extreme cold temperatures. Residents seeking shelter will be able to stay at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation Center, 1522 Linden Ave., starting at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 27. The Center will remain open on a 24-hour basis during this period of extreme cold.
“Current temperatures and wind chills are at dangerous levels,” said Mayor Pete Buttigieg. “We are particularly concerned about any unsheltered homeless individuals, and are continuing to communicate with agencies that serve them while offering this City resource on an emergency basis.”
In addition, the winter amnesty shelter Project WARM will extend its normal operating hours to stay open until 10:00 a.m. Wednesday morning.
