Emergency Shelter Winter Plan 2021- 2022

Below are the steps Washoe County Housing and Homeless Services is taking at the Nevada Cares Campus to help prepare our participants for the lowering temperatures and inclement weather:

Warming Center 

Location: 1800 Threlkel St., Reno, NV, 89512

Contact Phone Number: 775-329-4141  

Criteria for emergency bed: Provide name, date of birth, and share the resources one is seeking

We have activated a warming center at the Nevada Cares Campus Emergency Shelter when the temperature dips below 35ºF. This warming center has a capacity of 112, in addition to the capacity at the emergency shelter of 604 beds. This local warming center is opened during inclement weather to protect individuals from freezing weather, rain, and snow. As the emergency shelter admits men and couples, single women who arrive at the Nevada Cares Campus emergency shelter are referred to Our Place, the local women and family shelter. In the event Our Place is full, women are welcomed at the Nevada Cares Campus emergency shelter.

We welcome anyone needing a bed or a place to come in from the elements.
