BEND, OR -- Shepherd's House Ministries, in the historic Shaniko Woolen Mill on Division in Bend, is upgrading its clothing distribution and laundry processing service.
For the last 10 years, the distribution center has been in need of repair. So, in the last three weeks, the homeless outreach removed walls, fixed wiring and painted, creating an expanded clothing and laundry area. During the process, distribution and laundry services were closed, but Shepherd's House officials expect it to be fully open and functional by Monday.
The shelter, which is open for laundry processing, showers, and clothing distribution from 2 to 4 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, says this is a major aspect of their ministry. Changes were made possible through community support.
