2019-2020 Winter Shelters

As winter arrives, we reflect with gratitude on the importance of our region’s warming shelters for our most vulnerable neighbors.

This past year, the HLC Shelter Committee has worked diligently to bring service providers together to streamline the region’s approach to warming shelters. Even with this effort, it wasn’t until this mid-November that a location was identified for a warming shelter in the city of Bend. With this addition we will have warming shelters in Warm Springs, Sisters, Redmond, Prineville, La Pine, Madras and Bend. Click here for a full listing of hours, locations and contact information… 

As we face winter, we recognize these shelters are only a temporary solution or Band-Aid. The need for warming shelters and the difficulty providing them highlights the need for larger solutions including transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, affordable housing and more.

Thank you to those who provide shelter, meals and connection for those experiencing homelessness. We are grateful to each of you that are making an impact.
