The Warming Room Shelter
The Warming Room provides a safe, warm place for those who find themselves homeless and can’t or won’t use the current shelter system to sleep during the winter months. The Warming Room also works to connect people with services that can help them meet their goals and better their quality of life. The Warming Room is located at the Murray Street Baptist Church @ 175 Murray Street in Peterborough. It’s open 7 nights a week from 9:30 pm to 9:00 am, starting October 19th and running through to April 30th.
The Warming Room relies on over 100 volunteers to cook, help with laundry, and support staff and guests on overnight shifts. If you are interested in volunteering or learning more, please fill out the volunteer form!
