LUM Winter Warming Station Opens 3 Days Early
Due to Snow, Freezing Temps & 20 MPH Winds
The LUM Winter Warming Station which was scheduled to open this Thursday at midnight, opened last night due to three inches of snow accumulation, freezing temperatures and 20 mph winds. The Winter Warming Station complements the services offered by the LUM Emergency Shelter and is used by individuals needing a place in the evening to “warm up.” Located in the LUM Office building (420 N 4th Street, Lafayette), it is open from midnight to 7 a.m. until April 2020.

No one in our community should have to spend the night outdoors in the harsh weather — and the LUM Winter Warming Station allows individuals, including those who are not eligible to stay at the LUM Emergency Shelter , to be in our safe, secure indoor warm space. It also gives individuals an opportunity to learn about other services offered by LUM and other local agencies for which they may be eligible. Other contingency plans are in place during stormy weather or if temperatures get dangerously low. For more details, please email Joe Micon ( ).
