The Hudson County Warming Center was scheduled to open on Friday, Nov. 10 to accommodate the homeless in anticipation of severe cold weather this weekend. The Urban Renewal Corporation (URC) will conduct pickup(s) at the Hoboken Shelter at 300 Bloomfield St. in Hoboken at 8 p.m. (line formation at 7:45 p.m.) and in Jersey City at the taxi stand on Sip and Bergen avenues 10 p.m. (line formation begins at 9:45 p.m.) to take guests to the Warming Center. They will make as many trips as needed.

The Hudson County Warming Center will not remain open continuously from Friday evening through Sunday morning. Instead, URC will transport guests back to Jersey City and Hoboken after 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday mornings. Their Outreach Team is prepared to engage and register individuals for any one of the existing shelters and the Warming Center.

All shelters in Hudson County will remain open to provide respite for guests. Local law enforcement agencies have been contacted to provide transport to individuals to the County Warming Center in Kearny and local shelters as needed.

If you encounter a homeless individual during this time period, local shelters should be consulted first. The contact information for the Kearny Warming Center is as follows: Phone: (973) 344-6852. The address is 53 S. Hackensack Ave. in Kearny.

The county also provided a hotline, but when the Reporter tried it, it rang without answers. Various officials were trying on Friday to determine who is responsible for handling the hotline, and there was no answer by press time. We will publish the correct number next week, but in the meantime, use the number above.

“I urge all in need of shelter and anyone concerned about their welfare to please use the available warming center service or call the homeless hotline to assist with shelter placement,” said Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise. “We greatly appreciate the cooperation of all our coalition partners in this effort.”
