PORTLAND, Ore. -- For the second time this season, officials with the Joint Office of Homeless Services will open a network of severe weather shelters to offer extra space to members of Portland’s homeless population looking to escape forecasted freezing temperatures, winds and potential freezing rain.

Officials said the shelters are open to individual adults, couples, pets and their belongings.

They ask families in need of shelter to call 211 to make arrangements.

George Devendorf, executive director of Transition Projects, said advocates are asking people who encounter homeless campers over the weekend to remind them the warming shelters are open and encourage them to call 211 if they need help figuring out where to go.

“And if a person is nonresponsive, and someone is really worried about their welfare, they should call the police non-emergency number and ask for a welfare check on that individual,” he said.

Anyone interested in donating warm clothing or other items, is encouraged to bring it to the Bud Clark Commons, at 665 NW Hoyt St. Donations can be dropped off 24/7.
