The weather is getting cold once again, so United Way of San Juan County and other supporters are pleased to respond to you, the town of Friday Harbor, with the “Out of the Cold” Severe Weather Shelter Program, offering temporary shelter for families and individuals during our coldest months. The shelter will operate on days of severe weather from Nov. 23-March 7, 2020.

In its third year, this program is funded through your generous donations and staffed by local volunteers willing to help out whenever someone calls in need of shelter from the cold. No prior experience is required, and volunteers receive a generous stipend for every night they participate (volunteers will be trained, and must submit to a background check).
