SANTA ROSA, Calif. (KRON) – The City of Santa Rosa is opening a temporary warming center for residents, the city announced Tuesday. This follows an announcement by the National Weather Service earlier this week warning that temperatures could drop below freezing.

The warming center is located at the Homeless Services Center of Catholic Charities’ new Caritas Center in downtown Santa Rosa at 301 6th St. Suite 108 and will be operating between the hours of 7 p. m. and 7 a. m. The center is meant to serve as a drop-in place to warm up and charge devices.
