Description

The IWS operates as a "low barrier" shelter during the winter months. It was designed to offer a safe and warm place to sleep for men and women who - for whatever reason - have no other alternative but the streets. The primary criteria for admission into the shelter is respectful behavior, regardless of whether or not a guest is under the influence of alcohol or illegal substance. Experience has taught us incidents of inappropriate behavior are rare. Guests simply appreciate a warm place to sleep. Participating sites and volunteers agree to follow a set of guidelines that allow for the safety and well being of guests and volunteers alike, including no drugs, alcohol, or weapons on the premise.
