"Code Blue" and Local Warming Centers

Dutchess County’s “Code Blue” protocol for serving local residents during winter months is in effect, with several County departments collaborating to ensure no resident who seeks shelter is ever turned away.  

Dutchess County’s Mobile Intervention Team, the Department of Community and Family Services’ Adult Protective Services division and local law enforcement departments have been in frequent contact with individuals without shelter, or those who have been referred to them, to offer shelter and long-term assistance. The Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response has also communicated with town supervisors and city and village mayors throughout the county to advise them of the ‘Code Blue’ plan. 

Hudson River Housing's Webster House Emergency Shelter is operating every night offering shelter to those in need. Shelter screening takes place each evening at 7:00pm at the Family Partnership Center in Poughkeepsie. For more information on Webster House, please contact (845) 452-5197.

Those aware of an individual in need of shelter can contact their local police department or call or text Dutchess HELPLINE (845) 485-9700 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Those who are running out of heating fuel can call (845) 437-0050 to make arrangements through the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP). If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please dial 911 and first responders will be dispatched.
