Cohoes Mayor opens up warming center at Community Center

COHOES, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Mayor of Cohoes says the city has developed a “warming station” for those who need it at the Cohoes Community Center.

Mayor Shawn Morse advises residents that due to the forecasted cold weather over the next several days, the City has made arrangements to have the “warming station” available when needed at the Cohoes Community Center.

He says by collaborating with community resources such as the Cohoes Community Center, they seek to provide overnight, temporary shelter to the homeless and residents that are without heat and/or shelter.

For anyone that is in need of assistance, please call 911 or go to your nearest Fire or Police Department and they will help assist in opening up the Cohoes Community Center located at 22 Remsen Street as a warming station to alleviate any potential health or safety hazards during the below freezing temperatures.
