MALDEN WARMING CENTER
A collaborative service providing a safe warm place for those experiencing homeless during the winter months
WHO WE ARE
A Totally Volunteer Organization
The Malden Warming Center (MWC) seeks to serve those experiencing homelessness by providing safe shelter and warmth during the winter months, recognizing each person’s inherent dignity and unique circumstance. Volunteers are comprised of people from cities such as but not limited to Malden, Medford, Cambridge and Arlington; as well as members of two local churches.
The MWC is to be a temporary night center for those that are homeless. It is a safe place of warmth during the harshest winter months. The MWC welcomes people experiencing active substance abuse and offers safe storage (no search) of the individual’s belongings, a place of warmth, comfort, hot drinks and warm soup. As much as possible warm clothing will be available and the staff will work to connect individuals to additionally needed services including more permanent housing, substance use treatment, and/or health/mental health services.
