Cooling Stations

During the blazing Texas summers, The Salvation Army strives to help those in need of refuge from the unforgiving heat.

When temperatures are forecast to rise and remain in triple digits for an extended period, The Salvation Army will activate 13 Cooling Stations to provide life-saving relief for the homeless, people without air conditioning, and those whose jobs require them to work outside.

Cooling Stations provide two necessary things for those at risk of heat exposure:

- Hydration – People should drink plenty of water when it’s excessively hot. Cold water will be available each day throughout the summer. With such scorching temperatures, it’s important for people to drink water before they get thirsty and to continue drinking throughout the day.

- A cool environment – Increasing the amount of time spent in air-conditioned environments helps the body cool off and lessens the likelihood of getting overheated. The Salvation Army’s Cooling Stations provide a cool environment where people can cool off for a brief time or stay all day.

These Cooling Stations will be open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and are located at:

The Salvation Army Homeless Shelter
5302 Harry Hines Blvd.
Dallas, Texas

The Salvation Army Homeless Shelter
1855 E. Lancaster Avenue
