A public meeting on the proposed winter homeless shelter to be hosted at North Bend Community Church is 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 20. The Church is located at 146 E. Third Avenue in North Bend.

The Snoqualmie Valley Winter Shelter is planned to be an overnight-only shelter from a target opening date of Saturday, Dec. 22, through March 7. It will provide a warm, safe place for up to 40 homeless men, women and families with children to sleep, share a meal and access information to help them.

The shelter will be open from 8:30 p.m. to 8 a.m., seven days a week. Shelter patrons will have to vacate the church by 7:15 a.m.
