With the unprecidented cold weather this week we want to make sure that people throughout our broadcast region are safe and warm. So, we have compiled a list of warming houses throughout the region. These are places where you can seek shelter from the elements. We do suggest calling them prior to going to them to check the hours when people can arrive.
If you need to be connected with services (heating, food, housing) immediately, please call 211 from any phone, they have referral specialists who can connect you with people who can help however you may need it whereever you may live in Wisconsin.
