The 2021-2022 WHO Season begins on November 1. We are working on a new website to keep you informed on how you can help. Please check back!

If you have considered donating, please do. Give what you can through our online option by pressing the “Donate Now” button, or mail your check marked “WHO” in the memo line to Council for The Homeless 2500 Main Street, Vancouver, WA 98660.Thank you for your essential partnership in the WHO.

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.
