An overnight shelter program in Eugene has expanded, relocated, and started its third year.  But as KLCC’s Brian Bull reports, the Dusk to Dawn camping program still faces high demand.

With several thousand people in Eugene still without power, a Red Cross shelter at Spencer Butte Middle School will stay open longer.  KLCC’s Brian Bull reports.  

Egan Warming Center

The Egan Warming Centers will activate tonight through Saturday.  They are now on standby for Sunday through Monday.  They are desperately in need of trained volunteers for many shifts at most sites for Friday through Monday.

A group called "Citizens for Protecting Corvallis" wants to see regulations on where homeless shelters can open and how they operate. A petition committee has begun collecting signatures to get an initiative on the ballot.

Supporters of the petition say shelters for the homeless should not be located in the downtown core of Corvallis. They also want to see sobriety requirements to limit what they call "damp" shelters. Paul Cauthorn is a chief petitioner who lives a couple blocks from the "Men's Winter Shelter" on 4th Street.
