Catholic Charities closed the doors to the Wausau Community Warming Center on April 15, 2013. We are planning to re-open our doors on November 1, 2013. Our season will run from November 1 through March 31, 2014. Many volunteers will once again be needed to have a successful year. As a reminder, volunteer opportunities are listed below. If you have any questions, you may contact Diane Borchardt at 715-849-3311. Volunteer Trainings will be posted on this page as they are scheduled.
Do you have an organization that would like to sponsor one of the nights. Please contact Diane for suggestions and more information on how we can customize this to your group. Our goal is to have an organization or church coordinate each
night of the week.
