~April 5, 2018 Updates ~
Hello EWC Supporters!

As we head into Spring we are getting ready for a few more wet, weather triggered OPEN nights which will make this our record breaking season.

A huge Thank YOU to all for your generous support with your time, gifts and well wishes to make this possible.

Quick 2017-2018 Season Statistics:
~ Open for 39 nights ~ tomorrow will likely be #40 with a couple more this weekend!
~ 50 human guests and 5 dogs
~ Many local guests stay more than one night, in total we have provided 233 nights of shelter, meals and kindness.
~ We have helped another 32 people, including a family with a baby, with meals & support.
~ We have helped many guests with help out of the area, connection with longer term shelter solutions and another to connect with substance abuse treatment.
~ Additionally we provide warm clothing, basic necessities & connection to resources to many others every day of the year.

We don't have a "closing date" as we are able to open if weather triggers are met any month of the year, but as the season tapers off we are working on dates for some "end of BUSY season" activities:

  • A celebration this successful season!
  • Opportunities to provide input and collaborate on ideas as we move forward towards next winter.
  • Opportunities to help with season wrap up tasks!

More information to follow over the next few weeks..........

With Thanks & Warmth, Cathie

A few of the other projects the EWC is part of:
