Ashland, Ore.– Starting November 16 some churches and halls opened their doors for the homeless community. Until April 16 people can go sleep at the following places: First Presbyterian Church of Ashland on Mondays, Pioneer Hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Trinity Episcopal Church on Wednesdays.
Councilwoman Carol Voison said the maximum number of people allowed to stay overnight at these shelters is 30. She said they are still trying to find volunteers and facilities for Friday through Sunday.
All of the shelters will be open Monday through Thursday starting 7:30 p.m. until 8:00 a.m whether the weather is below 20 degrees or not.
Dogs are allowed but children are not because of legal issues, there must be a separate room for them.
