By Robert Haugh

On Wednesday, February 22 from 12 a.m. to 9 a.m., a Freeze Watch has been issued for parts of the Bay Area by the National Weather Service. 

Due to the expected colder temperatures, these Santa Clara public facilities will be used as Respite/Warming Locations during regular operating hours through Saturday:

  • The Santa Clara Senior Center, 
  • Central Park Library, 
  • Mission Branch Library, and 
  • Northside Branch Library 

Here are the hours:

For those who need overnight sheltering and don’t have a referral from an agency, the County’s shelter hotline HERE4YOU at 408-385-2400 can provide assistance in finding shelters.

People can also dial 2-1-1 for additional information on expanded shelters and services in Santa Clara County.

The County of Santa Clara Office of Supportive Housing has published a list of Warming Center locations and cold weather safety tips on its website.
