The largest homeless shelter in eastern Oregon was open to the public Wednesday afternoon in Bend. Managers at the Bethlehem Inn say they hold an "open house" occasionally to give people a better idea of what the shelter is like. Managing Director Chris Clouart says in the past its been an eye-opener: “They are always so amazed; one of the things people will say to me is which sort of bothers me is 'oh its so clean'; like, what were they expecting? But we want people to come here and see what a homeless shelter, and how much of a community it is. And how important it is for people to recognize what kinds of services we offer to folks and right now we are almost at capacity." Clouart says many people think about the homeless in the winter when it's bitterly cold, but they are also very busy in the summer months. He says some homeless families also go to the parks this time of year and pretend they are camping.
