Warming shelters open in Washington County

With an extended stretch of bitter cold temperatures, warming shelters are opening their doors throughout Washington County to house our most vulnerable residents.

The past few nights have see below-freezing temperatures on the westside and it’s not over yet.

Shelters are open through at least Tuesday night at the United Church of Christ in Forest Grove, SOS Shelter at Orenco and Safe Place For Youth in Hillsboro, St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Tigard, and Rolling Hills Community Church in Tualatin.

The shelters provide a warm, dry bed and hot meal.
