Everyone deserves a warm, safe place to sleep during the cold winter months. Homeless people in Bozeman will now have a bigger and better facility this winter season. The Warming Center is set to open its doors at their new location, and is counting on the community's support.

The Human Resources Development Council (HRDC) announced yesterday that the Warming Center is moving to a new location at the corner of Griffin and Industrial Drive. The new facility is much bigger than the previous location at the Fairgrounds and will offer seperate living areas for men, women and families. There will also be a work area with computers for guests to search for jobs and places to live.

The Warming Center, who relies entirely on community support, is organizing its 2nd Annual Flying Signs fundraiser. Community volunteers will be located around Bozeman on Saturday, November 10th to collect donations and raise awareness about homelessness in Gallatin County. If you see these volunteers around town please show your support by honking your horns and donating to this important community resource. To volunteer, donate, or for more information please call Hannah Jensen at 585-4896 or email hjensen@hrdc9.org

The Warming Center provides a warm, safe place for individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness to spend the night. The center is open from 7 pm to 7 am from November 15 until March 31, when temperatures are at their coldest.
