    Temperatures are at record lows. Please spread the word to those who may need a warm place to go.

    A number of other warming centers and homeless shelters are open in Detroit and the suburbs:

    ■ The Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries is providing emergency shelters for those in need, including meals, clothing, beds and the opportunity to shower.

    The shelters are at: 3535 Third Street (men’s facility) in Detroit; Oasis, 13220 Woodward in Highland Park (a men’s facility;) and Genesis House III, 2015 Webb in Detroit (a women and children’s facility).

    ■ Cass Community Social Services at 11850 Woodrow Wilson St. in Midtown is serving women and children with room for 50 beds. The center is open from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. seven days a week.

    ■ Operation Get Down at 10100 Harper Ave. on Detroit’s east side reported about a 10 percent increase in homeless men and women. The facility has about 200 beds. It’s open daily from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

    Both warming centers are contracted by the city of Detroit and provide beds, a warm meal in the evening, breakfast and showers.

    ■ Community EMS has pledged a “rehab unit” that will take medical care, blankets, clothes and coffee to the city’s homeless. Anyone who sees a homeless person in need of help is asked to call (800) 343-4427.
