KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The freezing temperatures outside can be downright dangerous, which is why warming centers are offering people a safe place. 

The YMCA is opening its doors at all across Kansas City, serving as a warming center. That means anyone can stop by, enjoy a cup of coffee and most importantly stay warm.

The YMCA says they do this when temperatures drop and stay below freezing. And they admit that not a lot of people come to these warming stations. There are, after all, other places for people to go to seek relief all across the metro.

But, they say even if only a handful of people take advantage these warming stations, that is enough, because they say no one should be out walking around in these freezing temperatures.

The warming centers will stay open all day, closing in the evening. Here is a list of other warming centers in the metro:
