During the citizens forum portion of Monday night’s Mesquite City Council meeting some District 4 residents showed up to voice their concerns regarding the upcoming warming center that would serve the unsheltered when the weather gets dangerously cold.
Weather Activated Refuge Mesquite (WARM) is a collaboration between nonprofit Sharing Life Community Outreach and several local partners. It was announced last month that a site had been secured for a warming center – the gym of Seventh-day Adventist Church located at 422 S. Ebrite St.
WARM is not a shelter and does not provide long-term housing assistance. The center will only be open when the forecast temperature is 32 degrees with a 20 percent chance of precipitation or a standing temperature of 28 degrees. WARM will open at 5 p.m. and close the following morning by 9 a.m.
