Cold Weather Shelter Volunteers Needed

Cold Weather Shelter Volunteers


Winter is Coming…


Homelessness is an issue that affects us all. With the cold nights we have been experiencing in Skagit County the community’s cold weather shelters are beginning to open. These shelters rely heavily on the support of volunteers to operate and are often a last resort for those who experiencing homelessness in our community.



Winter Shelter Support

The Friendship House in partnership with the Seventh Day Adventist Church will be opening an emergency Winter Shelter with the goal of provide immediate care to Skagit County’s homeless population during these cold months. Volunteers are needed for a variety of rolls!

To be fully operational they need some spectacular volunteers that can assist their shelter staff. If you are interested in helping out please contact Chris at chris@skagitfriendshiphouse.org or to respond to this need directly click HERE.



Cold Weather Shelter Volunteers

The Salvation Army in Anacortes  has a cold weather shelter that opens ups when the temperature outside falls below 30 degrees. To volunteer with the Salvation Army as a Cold Weather Shelter Volunteer please contact at 360-293-6682 or to view and respond to this need directly please click HERE.
