The Extreme Weather Shelter (EWS) is a program which provides shelter to adults in need on nights of inclement weather. Based on guidelines from the National Weather Service, our program coordinator keeps tabs on the local weather during the winter season in order to help provide shelter on the coldest, wettest, and/or windiest nights of the year.
Attendees receive a shower, clothing, and dinner before our program coordinator drives everyone out to a local church to sleep for the night. Local churches in Arcata and McKinleyville let our clients stay overnight with chaperones in their facilities, providing sanctuary to those most in need. In the morning, clients receive a breakfast, sack lunch, and coffee before heading on their way.
Extreme Weather Shelter for 2017-2018 begins December 1st.
