In the wake of an officer involved shooting, which occurred on Tuesday, February 28th, Adapt will assist Onward Roseburg in continuing to provide Warming Shelter Services.
The Adapt-owned building at 406 Winchester Avenue in Roseburg will serve as a host-site for the Roseburg Warming Shelter. This Shelter, a collaborative effort between the City of Roseburg and Onward Roseburg, provides shelter to those in need under the City’s Severe Event Shelter Policy, Resolution No. 2020-22.
This resolution provides operational standards to open a temporary emergency shelter in buildings not designated as residential occupancy. Those operational standards include allowing a warming shelter to open during severe weather:
- On nights when the low temperatures are predicted to be 30 degrees Fahrenheit or less;
- Or when low temperatures are forecasted to be 32 degrees Fahrenheit or less with additional factors that could increase a person’s risk of exposure to cold such as precipitation, wind, fog and sustained low temperatures.
Adapt is proud to provide support to our unhouse and underserved community members during this time.
