The Severe Weather Network (SWN), a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, partners with community organizations, agencies and faith communities to provide emergency, overnight refuge during the winter months for individuals experiencing homelessness. In addition, we connect homeless individuals with community action agencies  that provide services necessary to assist individuals with the transition into affordable housing.

We operate on donations and the support of our local community. Please considering donating to the Severe Weather Network through various our fundraisers or by making a direct donation here.
