The Egan Warming Center is Inactive. Please keep an eye on this page for status updates.
Upcoming New Volunteer Orientations Scheduled:
None scheduled currently, stay tuned.
Egan volunteers will be fully vaccinated. We are already asking you to work in a congregate shelter with many guests who are not vaccinated. It can be darn near impossible to maintain six-foot distancing at all times. This is especially true with other volunteers with whom you are working side-by-side and elbow-to-elbow. You must be confident that they are fully vaccinated like you.
You will be asked to make this promise to other volunteers and our guests by signing an updated agreement. We will have new volunteer agreements to sign on-site before your next shift. And we are close (fingers crossed) to having an e-signature option on our website, but we’re not quite there.
Thank you for your understanding and support, and especially for your compassion, kindness and hard work.
Tim, Nick, Mike
About: The Egan Warming Center operates during cold weather months, November 15 to March 31. We open when the overnight temperatures are projected to be below 30 degrees F. 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.
