Cold Weather Shelter Information
for Saturday January 20, 2024

Hillsborough County, Fla. (Jan. 19, 2024) – Hillsborough County’s cold weather shelters program will be activated tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 20, for the homeless and those who live in homes without adequate heat who are unable to find other accommodations. The National Weather Service expects local temperatures to dip to or below 40 degrees with wind chill in Hillsborough County on Saturday night. 


Note: The shelter program will not be activated on Friday night, Jan. 19, because the forecast does not meet the threshold. 


Shelter organizers are expecting high demand with limited capacity, so residents who need a warm place to stay are encouraged to use all resources like friends and family as a first option. 


Hillsborough County is partnering with the following organizations to provide limited-capacity cold weather shelters for adults. All shelters will take in guests from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 20, unless they reach capacity prior to that time.
