The First Place Annex Night Shelter

   

The First Place Annex is a permanent home for the Interfaith Night Shelter Program, which rotated among faith communities in Eugene, Springfield and beyond for more than a quarter century. Purchased with funds from a local donor, The Annex opened in the fall of 2018 and has the capacity for up to 20 families at a time.

Once accepted, families arrive at The Annex in the late afternoon, enjoy the dinner and activities offered by volunteers, and bed down in family-size cubicles that occupy the former church sanctuary.

Families are up early and out of The Annex, leaving the building closed during the day. They are allowed up to 90 nights at The Annex while they work diligently toward stable housing.

The First Place Annex staff welcomes volunteers, especially for evening meals and activities. Any family, employee team, like-minded group, etc. that wants to help families is welcome. At full capacity, 20 families or about 85 people await a hot meal served with kindness, followed by family-oriented activities in the living room.

Night Shelter volunteers also offer help with homework to school-age kids. It’s a great opportunity for youth groups and any student who needs volunteer hours to advance.
