Winter Hospitality Overflow (WHO) Program

The Winter Hospitality Overflow Program is the program that bridges the gap between limited shelter space and the increasing number of people who seek shelter during the winter months. WHO is a partnership of Share, Council for the Homeless and the faith-based community located at St. Andrew and St. Paul Lutheran Churches.

Through WHO, emergency shelter is available at St. Andrew, St. Paul and Share House seven nights a week. St. Andrew accommodates up to 50 people per night; those staying at the church can enjoy dinner at Share Orchards Inn, located just a few blocks away. Twenty-four single men can find shelter at St. Paul; men staying at the church can access shower facilities and receive meals at Share House. An additional 15 homeless men are accommodated in the Share House dining room.

Each year, 30 faith-based organizations and more than 900 volunteers give of their time and money to support this valuable program. If you would like to make a financial contribution to support WHO, please mail your check, earmarked for WHO, to: The Council for the Homeless 2500 Main Street Vancouver, WA 98660.
