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.
Hours: Thursday nights, from Nov. 1, 2018 – Mar. 31, 2019 (5:30 pm – 6:30 am).
Intake: Walk in basis. Doors open at 5:30 pm
Serves: Space for 30 adults (age 18 or older) is available on a first come, first-served basis. Dinner and breakfast is provided.
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, fill out the PDF form and submit it to Megan Cohen at the City of Beaverton (mcohen@BeavertonOregon.gov), or use the online form. Volunteers will receive training and support, and find a welcoming community of other great people
