2018-2019 EWC Season ~ In Action!
Hello Amazing Supporters!

The EWC has been open 26 nights, tonight is 27. We have had 44 individual guests & 3 pups. We have provided a total of 186 nights of shelter. And looks like the next couple weeks will provide many more nights.

In these long stretches it takes MANY hands to keep the center going and our guests connected to basic necessities. See below for may ways to help: with donations, volunteering & on projects!

Thanks for your teamwork on this grass-roots community effort to help care for our neighbors in need!

Warmly, Cathie

Another FULL week of bitter cold nights ahead ~ Help needed

VOLUNTEER's are the key
to being able to open on the most severe weather nights and provide the basic necessities our guests need.
