Executive Director Jason Bull said that’s typical in the Winter, but the shelter hasn’t been this full in years.
“We found out we didn’t have enough beds,” Bull said. “We ended up purchasing about 24 beds and we may need to purchase some more, we’re going to look at that this week actually, and find out where can we fit more people.”
Staff are hoping the community steps in to help. The biggest need right now is twin sized bedding. If you’re interested in helping, you can donate online here, or call the Women’s Shelter at (541) 772-2931.
