MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis is expected to hit dangerous freezing temperatures tonight.

If you are in need of somewhere to go, the Warming Center will open at the Hospitality Hub at 590 Washington Ave. at 7 p.m.

The Hickory Hill Community Center at 3910 Ridgeway Road is also open as of Friday morning.

Memphis has an estimated 1,000 people who are unhoused, living either on the street or in a car.

Advocates for the homeless say that number went up during the pandemic.

The Hospitality Hub opened in October, offering help for women who’ve experienced trauma and homelessness.

They’re also building Hub Studios for emergency housing needs.

The Hospitality Hub will remain open 24 hours during this severe winter weather.

The Southaven Community Safe Room located at 7312 Highway 51 N. will also be up and running tonight as well for those in that area.
