Jefferson Interfaith Action Coalition*

The Warming Center in Port Townsend
becomes
The Winter Welcoming Center

UPDATE:

The Warming Center was a blessing for all!
Guests, Volunteers, Staff, and generous community support came together for a successful effort to warm the body and spirit!

Stay tuned for next plans to meet the need this coming winter.

There is currently a need for a warming center for the homeless community during the day. This need is more pronounced with the closing of the Boiler Room. 

Spearheaded by the Jefferson Interfaith Action Coalition, the goal is to provide shelter and supportive space during the cold winter months. Local Communities of faith, along with anyone called to support the effort, are invited to participate.

If you’d like to give to this effort, click the button below, give to the “Mission and Ministry of FPCPT” and enter “Welcoming Center” or “Warming Center” in the NOTES area.

100% of your generous donation will go to the Welcoming Center.

Thank you!

Getting Ready for opening!
