Distribution Site and Designated Temporary Shelter Sites
Starting Monday, April 6, White Bird Clinic (341 E 12th Ave.) began operating as a distribution site for people experiencing homelessness. People experiencing homelessness can access resources, pick-up supplies, and learn about COVID-19 prevention and symptoms. The White Bird distribution site also serves as a check-in point to access spaces in designated temporary shelter sites in Eugene. To get an assigned space at these temporary shelter sites, individuals need to check-in at the distribution site first and receive a basic medical screening.
Designated temporary shelter sites are locations where small groups of people (up to 10 people in no more than six tents/vehicles) can camp in tents or vehicles with appropriate social distancing and will be supported with hygiene stations (portable restrooms and handwashing stations), food and supplies, and welfare check-ins. The locations also have privacy fencing in place to help support the security of the site. The sites are managed by White Bird and Carry It Forward, local homeless service providers.
The first two designated temporary shelter sites are located in the parking lots of the Amazon and Hilyard Community Centers, and spaces in the site are available by referral only as noted, above. The White Bird distribution is open seven days per week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Lane County and White Bird opened a third shelter. They mobilized a third temporary shelter site in a portion of the Petersen Barn Community Center parking lot, which provides space for up to six additional car camping sites and six tent camping sites.
