Community Shelter and Resource Center
A Winter Shelter - “Community Shelter & Resource Center (CSRC)” - opened October 3, 2023 in Newport. The shelter operates at First Presbyterian Church in Newport until the permanent site opens at the former Crossroads building (351 SW 7th, Newport). We deeply thank St. Stephens Episcopal Church for their previous participation as shelter sites.
A Lincoln City shelter location in planned. Free public transit tickets are available to transport people to the Newport shelter.
This shelter is open seven days a week through March 2024.
A shelter is also in the works for this winter season for Lincoln City. The opening of this site is planned for late 2023.
Shelter Rules (PDF), which must be signed and acknowledged by all guests.
The Community Shelter and Resource Center is a welcoming, safe environment for all, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
We are looking for volunteers! There will always be two paid staff at the shelter, but volunteers are of great assistance to helping the program run smoothly. Consider joining us an evening or early morning, any day of the week.
Lincoln County Employees may register to volunteer here.
