Purpose

The Pendleton Day Center provides a warm place for people to escape the cold morning temperatures in the winter and hot temperatures in the summer.  It also provides periodic free shower services. The Day Center offers companionship for the lonely, beverages appropriate for the season, and some simple food.  Day Center volunteers can help guests with job searches and assist them in identifying resources for their specific problems.

Operations

A minimum of two volunteers are usually on duty whenever the Day Center is open.  Opening the Center depends on volunteer availability.  Guests may use the facility regardless of circumstance, although the operation specifically targets our homeless community.

Winter

The Pendleton Day Center opens when morning temperatures are predicted to be at or below 0 degrees.  Wind chill and the potential for hypothermia are also taken into consideration.  

Spring/Summer/Fall

The Day Center provides periodic showers for homeless individuals.   Schedules vary depending upon volunteer availability.  The next open shower date can usually be found on the Outlook page.

Summer

The Day Center opens as a Cooling Station when summer temperatures are predicted to be 95 degrees or higher.   Cold water and other drinks are available.
