Welcome

Welcome

 Egan Warming Center is currently INACTIVE.

To all our amazing volunteers including those who work in the background, your generosity of time allowed us to activate our sites for 5 nights.  We began the season with many changes to downtown Eugene and Springfield.  All in all things went well system wide.  Thank you so much!

We look forward to adding new volunteers to our Egan volunteer family.  Our orientation and training is a requirement for all new volunteers.  The volunteer application will be available and filled out at the training.

Our new volunteer orientation and trainings will be held at each of our sites.  We are giving new volunteers the opportunity to see the site you might like to work at and meet some of the volunteers from that site.

EGAN WARMING CENTER PROTOCOL:

In our protocol we deal with averaged forecasted temperatures and the actual temperatures can end up being very different.  We live in Oregon where the temperatures change rapidly.  

Standby is called 72 hours out if the night time averaged forecasted temperature is below 30 degrees.  The first night of an activation is called 48 hours out if the averaged forecasted temperature is still below 30 degrees.  Consecutive activation nights will be called 24 hours out if the averaged forecasted temperature remains under 30 degrees.  We strive to make the call by 6:00 pm.

 

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 the online application and attend a new volunteer orientation and training.
