Cold Weather Assistance


Recent sub-freezing temperatures along with snow and ice have been quite jarring in a community where we are used to a much more temperate climate. At the same time, the issue of homelessness is a dominant story in the news—and this is a problem that extends from the city to the suburbs and beyond.
If you find yourself or someone you know in need of weather-related shelter or assistance or would like to learn about other agencies where you can offer support, here are several good resources:

http://211info.org/emergency—locations, hours and contact info for cold weather shelters by county in Oregon and Southwest Washington

http://211info.org/donations—lists agencies accepting donations
of blankets, coats and other supplies

www.loveinc-tts.org (503)443.6888—provides a clearinghouse
linking programs from local churches and agencies with families
in need in the Tualatin, Tigard and Sherwood communities
