Extreme Heat Shelter


A Temporary Cooling Center is set up on days where the National Weather Services designates “Extreme Heat” advisories.

Temperatures in excess of 95 degrees, combined with Hampton Roads humidity, make ambient air temperatures feel well over 100 degrees.  The Weather Service advises people to stay in air-conditioning if possible. If you must be outside, wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing, take frequent breaks in the shade and drink plenty of fluid. 

On Extreme Heat days, HELP opens a cooling center to ensure that our homeless brothers & sisters are

  • hydrated

  • safe

  • cool
