First Call 211 is an information and referral service that exists to direct those in need to assistance in the community.
Transition Projects opens and operates the first line of Severe Weather Shelter services (SWS) in Multnomah County, opening spaces at night and offering expanded day services during these events.
When severe weather occurs, we need you ready to help vulnerable people get inside and have a safe place to sleep.
You may be asked to work alongside Transition Projects staff or alongside staff and volunteers at other shelters that open as need grows over the course of a long severe weather event.
ALL information shared during a call is confidential.
First Call 211 of Richland County has walk-in services available from am- pm Monday through Friday at our office.
