ASHLAND, Ore --For the first time in Ashland a winter shelter will be at one location.

"We are so incredibly excited about that." said Michelle Arellano. She is the Executive Director for OHRA. Last year the shelter was at a different church every night. "Everybody made it happen, but it was just a lot of work." said Arellano. 

This year guests will get to sleep in the same bed every night. "It helps them get back on their feet and have some stability in their lives." said Arellano. The shelter will house 45 guests from the beginning of November to the end of March. It will be similar to the Kelly Shelter in Medford. 

It also does more than just temporarily house people. Last year OHRA found 19 people housing, 17 people jobs and help more than 40 sign up for health care. Arellano says she can't thank the volunteers enough. 

People can start signing up for a spot at OHRA's Resource Center in Ashland. Right now interviews are taking place to find people most in need of a place to sleep.

The shelter is also looking for volunteers. There is an Orientation Kick Off Thursday, October 10th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. It's at the Methodist Church in Ashland.

Donations are also needed for the shelter.
