Egan Warming Center

Man with 'open tonight' signThe Egan Warming Center was started by a coalition of community members representing service providers, nonprofits, faith and social activist communities and local governments that came together in 2008 to ensure that homeless people would have shelter during extreme cold weather. It was named in honor of Major Thomas Egan, a Eugene resident who froze to death during a cold spell in 2008.

Warming centers open when temperatures are forecast to drop below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Local faith communities and other volunteers serve snacks or meals and a safe place to sleep. The program has one part-time professional staffperson, but all other services are provided by volunteers. St. Vincent de Paul was honored to serve as the lead agency for the Egan Warming Center.
