Medford Severe Weather Shelter
Get Immediate Shelter & Assistance
The Medford Severe Weather Shelter operates in partnership with the City of Medford to provide emergency shelter in the event of extreme heat, cold, smoke, and other severe weather conditions.
How It Works
When the City of Medford declares a “severe weather event,” the Medford Severe Weather Shelter will open and provide beds for up to 64 individuals. The shelter is staffed by trained ACCESS employees and volunteers. Shelter participants will have access to:
- Dry storage
- Protection from the elements outside
Shelter is first come, first served.
Non-aggressive pets are welcome, and pet food is available.
We also offer Resource Navigation and outreach to participants. Just let a staff member know you need help.

Ways to Help the Shelter
The Medford Severe Weather Shelter literally saves lives. Your gift of time or money can help provide safety for someone who may otherwise face the threat of heat stroke, frostbite, or worse.
It would not be possible to open and operate the shelter without volunteers. To learn more about what volunteering at the shelter entails please visit our Volunteer page, or make a donation to ACCESS.
If you have items you’d like to donate to the Medford Severe Weather Shelter, we are always in need of the following:
- Bedding (blankets, pillows, sheets)
- Hygiene items
- New and gently used winter clothing
- New, unopened pet food
- Feminine products
- Depends undergarments and pads
Please contact our Donor Support Team at (458) 488-1220 for information about dropping off donations.
