Sullivan County activates warming centers

MONTICELLO – As overnight temperatures dip into the teens, Sullivan County is opening its warming centers from noon on Saturday through Tuesday, January 10 at noon.

The warming centers are located at the Ted Strobel Center at 10 Jefferson Street in Monticello and the Methodist Church at 170 North Street in Liberty. People in need of a place to warm up or stay overnight due to the cold can be helped at those locations.

Health and Family Services Commissioner Joseph Todora also said if a homeless person is encountered who may be suffering from mental illness, you can call the county’s Mobile Mental health team at 800-710-7083.

Currently, if someone needs a place to warm up, the county’s partners at the Sullivan County Federation for the Homeless and Action Toward Independence, both located in Monticello, and CACHE and People for Equal Justice will contact the Department of Family Services.

The public may also refer or report a homeless individual or family to any of the following agencies:

• Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office – 845-794-7100
• Monticello Police Department – 845-794-4422
• Fallsburg Police Department – 845-434-4422
• Liberty Police Department – 845-292-4422
• New York State Police – 845- 292-6600
• Sullivan County Department of Family Services – 845-292-0100
