We are the Winter Hospitality Overflow (WHO), an organization in Vancouver, Washington, 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 am to 5 pm and on weekends from 11 am to 2 pm.



It is with great sorrow that we learned of the passing of Jim Stender, pastor of St. Andrew Lutheran Church. Pastor Jim was instrumental in the operation of the Winter Hospitality Overflow program for the past 16 years. He was dedicated and passionate about helping those in need in our community. We will remember him for his humor, kindness, compassion and strength of character. Pastor Jim was a true gift to our community and he will be missed.
