The Beaverton Severe Weather shelter was opened in January 2017 to provide a warm, safe space for adults experiencing homelessness to stay during the winter. The shelter is operated by Just Compassion of East Washington County.
Open Thursday nights, from November 2019 – March 2020 5:30 PM – 6:30 AM | Beaverton Community Center (12350 SW 5th St.) Adults 18+
Additional open hours will occur on any evening when temperatures are at/below freezing and there is sufficient volunteer capacity to support operations. Open hours and changes to the current scheduled will be posted at the Beaverton City Library.
Looking for ways to support the shelter? We can’t open without enough volunteers! If you are 18 years of age or older, and interested in volunteering, please complete the Volunteer Interest Online Form. Volunteers will receive training and support, and find a welcoming community of other great people
