Due to frigid temperatures, Code Blue will be in effect for the evening of Saturday, January 13.
Accordingly, the Henry Guest House, located at 58 Livingston Avenue (next to the New Brunswick Free Public Library) will be open overnight as a warming center between the hours of 7 p.m. tonight and 7 a.m. Sunday.
Code Blue goes into effect when temperatures dip below 20 degrees and/or there is an accumulation of at least six inches of snow on the ground. Warming centers are opened to provide a warm and dry place for residents without adequate shelter.
Please be advised that we attempt to accommodate all guests but space is limited. Doors will close at capacity or at 9 p.m.
Volunteers are sought to assist with Code Blue shelter staffing. For more information, please visit https://goo.gl/forms/27I7ApLBOb1LZcqF2.
Anyone in need of shelter or social services is encouraged to call 2-1-1 for assistance.
