Named in honor of Major Thomas Egan who froze to death during a cold spell in 2008, the Egan Warming Center mission is simple: to ensure that homeless people in Lane County have a place to sleep indoors when temperatures drop below 30 degrees.
Egan Warming Center is a program of St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County. The program receives funding from Lane County and support from a broad coalition of community members, service providers, nonprofits, faith and social activists communities and local government.
