With temperatures estimated above 90 degrees, life on the streets can go from unbearable to deadly. The City of New York has declared a “CODE RED” which means the BronxWorks Homeless Outreach Team will be working hard to help our most vulnerable neighbors get off the streets and into shelter.

Designated cooling centers are open today all around New York City and the Bronx. If you are living without air conditioning and need a place to cool down contact 311 or click here to find a cooling center near you. Please check on your neighbors, especially the elderly and sick.
