Description: Call anytime to leave a message or hear when phones will be answered. Usually responds to messages promptly. Provides shelter for men at rotating churches. ID required.

Winter Shelter Only
The shelter opened on November 15, 2014 and will run through the Spring. The men's shelter is staffed by professional, experienced employees managed by Congregations for the Homeless. In addition, trained volunteers will be on shift when available. Staff will be on-site between 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. The EWS will be open to patrons between 8:30 7:30 a.m. The shelter will be able to accommodate up to 50 to 80 Eastside men each night.

Providing a safe warm place to get some sleep is a big part of helping men have a solid foundation from which to launch, but we have found that having a nourishing meal is equally important.

We are looking for meals for up to 100 men. Delivery can occur any time after 8:00 p.m. nightly. Dinner will be served between 8:45 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. nightly. If possible, you are encouraged to stay and eat with the men. The Eastside Winter Shelter (EWS) was first opened during the winter snowstorm in December 2008. During the first two years the shelter was opened when certain weather criteria were met. Since 2010, the Eastside Winter Shelter has moved to being open every night during the winter months. The Sophia Way operates the women and family's EWS, and Congregations for the Homeless operates the men's EWS.
