New Landing Page for All Things Warming Center Related



The Scott Eicke Warming Center at Bartle Hall now has a comprehensive landing page for all things related to volunteers and donations. This landing page includes expanded and detailed volunteer opportunities as well as information regarding donations, including a regularly updated ‘greatest need’ section.


The Scott Eicke Warming Center, located in Bartle Hall, is a historic joint effort between the City of Kansas City, Mo., grassroots community organizers, and local nonprofit and outreach organizations. The Warming Center is not just a place for people experiencing houselessness to sleep and eat during freezing weather. Here we create space centering the voices, power, and lived experiences of houseless people while working to end the violent cycle of houselessness.
