EUGENE, Ore. – The City of Eugene, Lane County and the White Bird Clinic opened one more shelter site this week after two shelter sites that opened on April 6 filled up.
The two shelter sites at the Amazon and Hilyard community center filled up within days of opening.
The new shelter at Petersen Barn Community Center on Berntzen Road provides space for six vehicles and six tent spots.
The first shelters are housing up to 10 people each.
Temporary shelter sites are part of the City of Eugene’s strategy to help “flatten the curve.”
