An overnight warming shelter has opened for the season at Mountain View Fellowship in Redmond.
From now until March 15, 2023, the shelter is open every night starting at 6:00 p.m. at 1475 SW 35th Street.
There are 30 beds set up so far.
“So really, we are providing a safe place, a safe and warm place for people to sleep,” said Andrew Hoeksma with Shepherd’s House Ministries. “Every evening when guests join us, they also receive a home cooked meal provided by volunteers here in Redmond, and we send them with some food in the morning. So our guests are receiving a lot of essential, both life saving and comfort services here at the shelter.”
If you need help getting to the shelter, there’s a van pick-up at locations around Redmond. You can learn more about the shelter and schedule a pick-up by calling 541-788-8098.
