I’ve had my ups and downs but the one BIG lesson I learned at the WARM Center was there are still good people out in the world that care. NEVER give up on people because there are good and caring people. Most of all, I want to say thank you to the staff for being there and listening and putting me back on the right road.


Former resident of the women's dormitory

WARM was there for my family at a very tough time. They provided a place to live and great advice. Today, I’m working and we’ve moved into a place of our own. I’ll be grateful to WARM forever.


Former Harvest Homes resident

I’m on a fixed income. My finances are so tight that there isn’t a lot left over for food. When I go to WARM for dinner, I know I’m going to get at least one good, hot meal. Which is usually all I need.


Frequent diner at Anita's Kitchen

A few years back everything crashed in on us at one time: an unexpected medical bill, a car repair, reduced hours at work. Another agency referred us to WARM. Noella was able to help us get our rent paid so we wouldn’t lose our apartment. WARM was a lifesaver! Thanks you, WARM Center.
