Warming centers open in Pittsburgh
WTAE — When it gets this cold, it can become dangerous for those experiencing homelessness.
Throughout the winter, nonprofits and other agencies in Pittsburgh are working together to provide warming centers for people in need.
“It is life or death because you can freeze to death, and we don't want that to happen to anybody,” said the Rev. Kellie Wild, with Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Pittsburgh.
On 9th Street in downtown Pittsburgh, Catholic Charities' warming station is open seven days a week, from 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
