WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - November brings cool weather, and also a warm place for homeless people to spend the night. The Wausau Warming Center’s new location opened Friday night, and they’ve already had a half dozen guests. The center is operated at 3rd Avenue and Garfield Street by volunteers through the management of Catholic Charities. They still need more volunteers, as they expect to have more nightly visitors as the temperatures get colder.

The Wausau Warming Center began last winter at the St. Paul United Church of Christ Community Center downtown, but Catholic Charities quickly realized they would need to change locations to offer the homeless a place to wash their clothes and take a shower.

The new center also helps their visitors with job searches and checking email.

The Wausau Warming Center is open nightly with check-in between 7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Everyone must check out by 9:00 a.m.

Catholic Charities has been operating a similar warming site in La Crosse for several years.
