With temperatures estimated above 90 degrees, life on the streets can go from unbearable to deadly. When the temperature is 90 degrees, The City of New York will declare a “CODE RED”. 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 during a CODE RED 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. Cooling centers are open and available to the public.
