      Hypothermia Watch Partner Program


      The Hypothermia Watch Partner Program provides emergency shelter between November 1st and March 31st each year, and is also available during Hypothermia Alerts that are based on the National Weather Service forecasts.

      The hypothermia season begins November 1 and ends March 31. Hypothermia is a potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when a person's internal body temperature is less than 95 degrees Fahrenheit; Normal body temperature is about 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. When hypothermia occurs, the body loses heat faster than it is able to produce heat.
      Eligibility: Residency in the District of Columbia.

      How to Obtain Benefits and Information: Call the 24-hour Shelter Hotline at: 1(800) 535-7252.
