Severe Weather and Inclement Weather Shelters:

Shelters exist to provide residents with safety and protection from exposure to the weather while simultaneously reducing the environmental impact on the community. 

Severe Weather Shelters are historically operated between November and March to provide shelter to individuals experiencing homelessness. Project Homeless Connect currently oversees a limited number of non-congregate shelter sites under the Severe Weather Program within Washington County. The winter weather shelter list is currently closed. 

Inclement Weather Shelters are activated when weather conditions create an immediate danger for unhoused people. Inclement weather shelters “pop-up” through the weather event and operate on a “no-turn-away” basis to ensure everyone seeking a safe place to sleep can have access. During the winter months, inclement weather shelters will be activated when:

  • The forecasted temperature of 25° F (-3.9° C) or below; or
  • Forecasted snow accumulations of 1.0 inch or more; or
  • Forecasted temperature at or below 32° F (0° C) with driving rain of 1.0 inch or more overnight.

During the summer months, inclement weather shelters will be activated when the heat reaches dangerous levels.

Outreach:

The Coordinated Street outreach team identifies and engages people living in unsheltered locations, such as in cars, parks, abandoned buildings, encampments, and on the streets, and plays a critical role within systems for ending homelessness. Effective street outreach reaches people who might not otherwise seek assistance or come to the attention of the homelessness service system and ensures that people’s basic needs are met while supporting them along pathways toward stability.

HCMS:

Housing Case Managers are trained in housing navigation, trauma-informed care, culturally responsive care, housing first practices, and more. Case Managers build relationships with clients to begin addressing each person’s barriers to housing, they help navigate the complex housing placement process, and continue to support individuals with services and connections that support housing stability.

PHC One Day Events: 

In one day, a person experiencing homelessness can find services that would otherwise take months to secure.  PHC events started in January of 2006.  Volunteers, nonprofits, and government agencies provide participants with services through PHC.  These services include dental care, eyeglasses, HIV testing, HepA Vaccines, housing information, groceries, hygiene products, medical care, mental health services, SSI benefits, legal advice, employment counseling, job placement, wheelchair repair, addiction services, veteran’s services, and more.
