Emergency Assistance at the Eugene Service Station

The Eugene Service Station (ESS) is a welcoming day shelter that adults experiencing homelessness can use to meet their basic needs. The ESS provides food, day shelter, clothing, laundry, showers, supplies, and stabilizing assistance during personal crises. Additionally, the ESS is the gateway to our Emergency Shelters, including Dawn to Dawn, the Safe Parking Program, and Egan Warming Centers. 

If you are a family experiencing or are about to become homeless, please visit our Night Shelter Annex page for information about family shelter.

Services at the ESS

The ESS staff and volunteers are available for guidance and mentorship in becoming economically self-sufficient. The ESS has telephones, message services, computer access, and job and housing referrals to help those seeking services to get back on their feet. 

Additionally, the ESS has a commercial kitchen and a covered outdoor space where guests can get meals. Guests can also sign up for showers, shelter at Dawn to Dawn, and get help finding and qualifying for housing.
