HRWS Policy Manual
If you’re interested in the detailed policies underlying the operation of the shelter then this manual is for you. This is not required reading for our volunteers but is posted here for those who are interested and for purposes of transparency.
This sign can be printed portrait on letter-size paper and lists the dates and locations for the shelter through March 5th.
This Google map can be printed in color or B&W to give to folks who want to know where the shelters are located. It includes “pins” for each host site, the hospital, the HR Aquatics Center where they can get showers, and FISH Food Bank.
