About Our Organization

Founded in 2013, The Warming Shelter, as a 501c3, 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



Current Project: First Aid/CPR Staff Training and Supplies



The Warming Shelter is a local 501c3 nonprofit organization who assists individuals who are homeless during the coldest winder months of the year (November 1-April 30).  Our shelter consists of a 116-bed facility serving men, women and families within in a trauma informed approach atmosphere.  The staff at The Warming Shelter provide all types of care from resource referrals, basic needs and de-eseclation, among a few others.  Due to our staff not being trained in CPR and First Aid, our staff would need to call EMS to provide any of these services; resulting in high inquiries, man power and hours for the city. Our goal for this funding is to be able to provide First Aid and CPR training to our staff members, along with the 2-year certification, as well as provide the staff the necessary supplies needed for first aid care.  By providing First Aid and CPR training and certification to our staff members, those trained will be better equipped to provide care as needed to our residents; reducing EMS calls for first aid inquiries.  If an emeregency does occur and an individual is in need of CPR, our staff will be equipped to provide this until emergency services arrive, in the hopes of saving an individuals life.  We would like to continue to assist and serve our residents as best we can and this funding will enable our staff to do so.

    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!!
