This Year's Project: Shelter Updates/Expansion
Founded in 2013, The Warming Shelter serves to provide temporary emergency shelter for adult men, women, and families who have no other sheltering option in the Siouxland area. All services and assistance are offered in the context of the furtherance of human dignity with the primary goal of harm reduction during the coldest winter months of the year.
Current Project: Shelter Updates/Expansion
Founded in 2013, The Warming Shelter serves to provide shelter for men, women, children, and families who are experiencing homelessness or are at imminent risk of becoming homeless in our 116-bed facility. Our goal is to provide assistance that is offered in the context of the furtherance of human dignity, meeting our residents where they are at, and provide shelter during the coldest months of the year through a trauma informed care approach. The sole purpose of the Warming Shelter is to make sure no one freezes at night. With that purpose in mind, the Warming Shelter serves those individuals who have no other sheltering option. Our organization believes and truly respects all individuals; therefore, the Warming Shelter does not discriminate and lets anyone and everyone in as long as they are respectful of the space and others around them. The residents served at the shelter come from a variety of backgrounds, and we strive to be a safe community for all individuals, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, class, educational background, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability status.
Currently, the Warming Shelter is open from November 1-April 30 with the goal of being open year-round. With working towards being a shelter that is open year-round, the Warming Shelter is also working towards having both their day and night shelter in one location along with programming and resources given to those individuals that receive our services. Your donations will assist us in getting closer to achieving these goals. The community of Siouxland has continuously rallied around the Warming Shelter and we appreciate your continued support and gratitude for not only our organization but the individuals that we serve; those that are forgotten about, feel lost, or ignored. Thank you Siouxland!!
