News Release
Community Invited to Open House at Share House on Nov. 18; Volunteers Needed for Share Hot Meals Program - 11/08/19

Vancouver, WA – The community is invited to attend an open house at Share House, 1115 W 13th Street, on Mon. Nov. 18, 3 to 5 p.m.

“We appreciate the opportunity to welcome members of our community into Share House to see first-hand the offices, dorms, transitional housing rooms and community areas in which our case managers and housing navigators work each day to engage and motivate our residents by linking them with housing opportunities, developing budgets, completing applications and assisting them in telling their story to local landlords,” said Diane McWithey, executive director.

Staff will be on hand to provide tours through the building and to answer questions. Snacks and beverages will be available. The open house marks the reopening of the men’s shelter and recent restart of the Share Hot Meals program following an accidental fire back in July.

“Over 40 years, our Hot Meals program has relied on the generosity of numerous faith-based and community groups to prepare and serve meals. Many of our current groups include seniors, some who have volunteered for more than 20 years, who are unable to continue donating their time,” said Molly Evjen, director of volunteers and community resources. “We have an increased need for a new base of volunteers to support our Hot Meals program and hope that our generous community will step up to answer our call for help.”

All volunteers are required to complete an application and background check which can be done online at sharevancouver.org. For more information, contact Molly Evjen at 360-952-8228 or mevjen@sharevancouver.org.
