Weaver House

Weaver House Night Shelter offers year round shelter to adult men and women. Weaver House accommodates 100 people nightly — 84 men and 16 women — in separate dormitory-style rooms.

The Weaver House lobby is 365 nights a year and can accommodate an additional 25 men and women. On dangerously cold winter nights, the lobby serves as one of the city’s three White Flag Warming Centers. Our lobby guests are invited to join Weaver House guests for breakfast in Potter’s House Community Kitchen.

Would you like to support our guests by providing kits of personal care items? You can bundle items in something as simple as an extra-large Ziploc bag, or something like a small duffel or backpack. Here is a list of items that are always needed and appreciated by Weaver House shelter guests:

  • Towels
  • Washcloths
  • Toiletry items (shampoo, soap, shaving kits, deodorant, toothpaste, tooth brush)
