Winter Shelter

Most of us take our homes and the protection they provide for granted. However, some in our community find themselves huddling up against a downtown building to get out of the wind and snow during the cold Central Oregon nights. While having a safe and warm place to spend the night hasn’t always been an option for everyone in our community; this winter in Madras will be different. Shepherd’s House Ministries, Jefferson County Faith-Based Network, the Madras Gospel Mission, local churches have partnered together to provide shelter on the coldest of nights to individuals who would otherwise spend the night outside. Shelter staff will be on sight each night to register the guests, provide a simple hot meal, engage in conversation, play board games, and help the guests get settled for the night. In the morning guests help clean up the shelter area, are fed a hot breakfast and leave the shelter by 7:00 AM.
