It’s Finally Summer in Hood River!

Bumble beeYes, it’s finally summer in Hood River. With the heat, many mistakenly believe that the need for homeless and low-income assistance goes down, but according to various Hood River agency records, requests for aid actually increase! Please remember to continue to support local aid agencies/programs that assist the poor in our area.

Hood River Warming Shelter may be closed for the season, but our committee, open to all, is still working hard at expanding our program for the coming winter. Be sure to check back here the end of July for more information about the exciting changes coming to HRWS!

Better yet, join us in planning and preparation! Our next meetings are Monday, June 27th, 2-3pm in the conference room in the basement of the courthouse. We’ll meet again Monday, July 25th – same time and place! All are welcome to join – no need to commit to anything, just show up and be part of the discussion and planning!

Thank you all for your continued support and encouragement. You make this Gorge community GREAT!
