Stay Warm from Cold Weather

Warming Centers

Severe cold temperatures can present a significant risk to unsheltered homeless persons. During these times, the Santa Clara County will be opening warming centers. In Gilroy, the designated warming center is the Gilroy Armory located at 8490 Wren Avenue. Other centers can be found at the Arturo Ochoa Migrant Center on Southside Drive.


For more information on shelter locations and warming centers around Santa Clara County, visit the Office of Supportive Housing at http://bit.ly/SCCshelters or call (408) 793-0550.


The County’s Office of Supportive Housing has raised by several degrees the trigger temperatures for an inclement weather episode from previous seasons. The current trigger conditions are as follows:

  • There is a forecast of an overnight low of 40 degrees (previously 38 degrees) or lower with a probability of rain of less than 50%; or,
  • There is a forecast of an overnight low of 45 degrees (previously 42 degrees) or lower with a probability of rain of 50% or greater.

These conditions are less severe than conditions that would trigger the State to declare a state of emergency; however, they can present significant risk to unsheltered homeless persons, especially those who are ill or injured.

During declared Inclement Weather Episodes, up to 192 additional beds will be available at: Bill Wilson Center, City Team Ministries, HomeFirst’s Boccardo Reception Center, the Gilroy Armory, LifeMoves Georgia Travis House, Montgomery Street Inn and Project WeHOPE. Below is a listing of warming centers that will be available during inclement weather episodes.
