Oxnard Shelter Opening Date Moved Up due to Rain: Will Open Wednesday, 1/30/19, at 5:00 p.m.


We am writing to advise that a change has been made to the opening date for the Temporary Emergency Shelter.  Instead of opening on Friday, February 1, 2019, the doors to the TES will open on Wednesday, January 30, at 5:00 p.m., at 351 South “K” Street, Oxnard CA 93030.

 This change in schedule is due to a rapidly-changing weather forecast, which now calls for rain to hit our area in the pre-dawn hours on Thursday morning.  Between now and Wednesday, the dedicated (and now almost complete) shelter staff will continue with logistical preparations, with staff training that began last week, and with coordination with our partners on the Coordinated Entry System (CES).   Specific questions about shelter operations may be directed to Shelter Manager Amanda Herrera at 805-612-7381.  Inquiries regarding volunteering should be directed to Ms. Monique Simental at 805-247-0335.

We ask that you please assist us by disseminating this email to anyone who you believe may be interested and/or who might be able to assist in getting the word out.  Thank you very much.
