The Winter Shelter
West County Community Services provides night-time shelter for at least four months during the winter for those in need in the lower Russian River area. The Shelter, located in the Guerneville Veterans Building, is a “behavioral based” center. The Shelter can accommodate 40 individuals ordinarily, but, when rain or cold become severe, room can be made for 50. 142 individuals took advantage of the facilities during the 2015–16 winter, when the Shelter remained open for a fifth month due to the continued inclement weather. Evening meals are provided by an army of community volunteers.
