Who We Are

We are the Winter Hospitality Overflow, an organization in Vancouver, Wash. devoted to helping those in need during winter’s coldest months.

Guests are offered not only a warm place to sleep, but a hot shower, meal, and the welcome and warmth of a caring community working to address the most basic of human needs.

Over the years, the generous contributions, donated facilities, and thousands of volunteer hours are testimonials to the compassionate response of the Clark County community.

If you are in need of assistance November 1 to March 30, call the Housing Hotline at (360) 695-9677 Monday to Friday, between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekends from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

St. Andrews Church supports individuals, couples and families needing overnight shelter during the winter months. There is no immediate assistance within shelter and placement is based on availability with beds. For families, couples and single females who are not able to get a bed, you will be placed on the shelter wait-list and referred at the next immediate opening.

St. Paul’s Lutheran Church supports single men seeking emergency shelter. Placement for beds is based on a first call first serve. You will be assigned a meeting time with a case manager to assign a bed number if there are any openings that day.
