Clackamas County opens overflow warming shelter at Clackamas Community College

Main Content

In partnership with Clackamas Community College in Oregon City, Clackamas County has opened an overflow warming shelter at the Gregory Forum on the college's campus.

This overnight and daytime shelter opened in coordination with The Father's Heart in Oregon City. Clackamas County is asking that people seeking a warming shelter should first go to The Father's Heart instead of going directly to the Gregory Forum. Officials at The Father's Heart will be able to transport shelter guests to the Gregory Forum if needed.

The Gregory Forum shelter, which will stay open until at least Jan. 17, will also serve shelter guests amenities such as food and hot beverages. Several TriMet bus lines serve the campus, including Line 33. Service pets that are on a leash or in carriers are accepted at the Gregory Forum. The Clackamas Community College address is 19600 S Molalla Ave. Oregon City, OR 97045.
