A Winter Shelter – “Community Shelter & Resource Center (CSRC)” – will open October 3, 2023 in Newport. To start, there will be a weekly rotation between St. Stephens Episcopal Church and First Presbyterian Church in Newport. Once ready, another more permanent site will be used at the former Crossroads building (351 SW 7th, Newport).
This shelter will be open seven days a week through March 2024. The shelters are open from 6pm to 7am every day of the week.
A shelter is also in the works for this winter season for Lincoln City. The opening of this site is planned for November 1, 2023.
