Support offered for severe weather shelter providers

When area winter weather results in extreme low temperatures, it has a significant impact on those experiencing homelessness. So Whatcom County Health Department officials have put out a call to organizations who will consider providing short-term, overnight shelter services during instances of severe weather this coming winter. 

Health Department officials say they are reaching out to partners who may be willing to consider providing short-term overnight shelter services during severe weather this coming winter. These services include shelter space, personnel or both if the capability exists.

Support for organizations interested in operating a severe weather shelter includes:

  • Connecting with trained individuals who can act as volunteer leads when the shelters are open
  • Financial assistance to purchase bottled water and packaged snacks
  • Custodial support

More details are provided in an invitation letter (PDF) and list of guiding assumptions (PDF) for shelter operations provided by the Health Department.
