(WHNT) – A number of warming centers serve the public during extreme cold weather.  Phone numbers are listed for some — please call before you visit to double-check hours and make sure they are indeed open.

Alabama 211 also keeps an online list of warming centers across the Tennessee Valley.

NOTE: WHNT News 19 has reached out to different counties — we are working to add more resources to this list. If you are affiliated with a church or other organization that opens often during cold weather and would like to be listed on a permanent basis, please email details to interactive@whnt.com.
