City Hall to open as respite center this week for unsheltered residents during cold weather

With the National Weather Service forecasting very cold overnight temperatures in Sacramento this week, the City will open City Hall as a temporary overnight respite center so people experiencing homelessness can come inside during the worst of the cold weather.

City Hall Lobby (915 I St.) will be open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights, Feb. 23 – 25 , from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.

In addition to City Hall, several other warming centers are opening this week:

Sacramento County locations:

DHA Annex (1725 28th St.) and Creekside Adult School (2641 Kent Drive), February 22-25, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Other Sacramento locations:

Capitol City SDA Church (6701 Lemon Hill Ave.), Feb. 22-25, 6 p.m. to 8 a.m.

Union Gospel Mission (400 Bannon St.), nightly from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

City of Elk Grove:

Wackford Center (9014 Bruceville Road), Feb. 22– 24, 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.

Please note that some of the coldest weather expected this week coincides with the Point in Time Count of people experiencing homelessness. In addition to staffing the City Hall respite center, many City staff and contractors will also be working during the Point in Time Count scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

This article was updated to reflect extending the opening of the City Hall respite center to include Friday night, Feb. 25.
