A Safe Haven Foundation Emergency Warming Shelters: If you or someone you know is experiencing lack of a warm shelter, during extreme temperatures, beginning tonight through Tuesday, please call 311 or 911. A Safe Haven is participati…ng as part of a City wide effort to provide emergency warming shelters, however, space is limited. The City of Chicago emergency numbers will refer you to your nearest warming shelter. We recommend you please contact your local City Warming Center at 10 S. Kedzie Avenue. It is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Due to the extreme cold, all six DFSS Community Service Centers will serve as Warming Centers with extended times from Sunday, January 5th to Tuesday, January 7th from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. DFSS COMMUNITY SERVICE CENTER LOCATIONS   Englewood Center, 1140 W. 79th Street Garfield Center, 10 S. Kedzie Avenue King Center, 4314 S. Cottage Grove North Area, 845 W. Wilson Avenue South Chicago, 8650 S. Commercial Avenue, Trina Davila, 4357 W. Armitage Avenue Additional community facilities that serve as Warming Centers are libraries, Park District buildings and senior centers. Transportation is provided for the elderly and the disabled who cannot get to a Warming Center on their own. Call 311 for current information on Warming Center locations and hours. In the event of more snow, we remind you to please clear the walkway in front of your residence or home. Without a wide, clear path through snow and ice, it is especially difficult for people with disabilities, seniors and children to walk safely. According to the Municipal Code of Chicago (4-4-310 & 10-8-180), property owners and occupants are responsible for keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice. Additionally, if you know of any friends or neighbors who may need some extra assistance during the colder weather, please check-in on them. Please call 911 if there is an emergency.
