Weaver House Night Shelter offers year round shelter to adult men and women, accomodating 100 people nightly. There is capacity for 84 men and 16 women. Weaver House welcomes all who are in need of shelter, no one in real need is turned away unless space is not available.
On dangerously cold winter nights, the lobby of Weaver House serves as one of the city’s White Flag Warming Centers. Our lobby can hold 25 additional guests. These guests are served breakfast with the other guests of Weaver House in Potter’s House Community Kitchen.
