The Egan Warming Centers willACTIVATEtonight, Friday 11/27. If enough volunteers check in to staff our sites then we will activate Saturday 11/28. We are now on Standby for Sunday 11/29/15 through Monday 11/30/15. We are very badly in need of Trained Volunteers for many shifts at most sites for Friday through Monday. If you are not already scheduledand are a trained Egan volunteer, please check in by clicking on one of the links above.
The following sites will be activated Friday11/26/15:
Youth Site (Olive between 13th & 14th, Eugene, 18 and under only, pets allowed)
LCC Building 4, Room 104 (open to all in need, especially LCC students, faculty and staff)
NOTE: We cannot shelter families at any of these sites. Families with no other shelter options on nights Egan is activated can go to Catholic Community Services (Eugene: 1464 W 6th Ave 9am - 4:30pm) (Springfield: 1025 G Street 9am-4:30 pm) during business hours to inquire about alternate shelter on Egan nights.
The Egan Warming Center is a coalition of community members representing service providers, religious congregations, nonprofit support agencies, social activist communities and local government who have come together to ensure that homeless people in Lane County have a warm and safe place to sleep when temperatures drop below 30 degrees between November 15th and March 31st.
Please take a moment and consider how you and/or your organization or business can get involved this winter season. To help in a shelter this winter, please complete an online Volunteer Application today.
