  Partner's Place
Operations
  • Partner's Place is owned and managed by The Corvallis Homeless Shelter Coalition
  • Currently, the Corvallis Homeless Shelter Coalition has responsibility for property management until a new property management firm can be contracted. 
  • The Coalition employs a Case Manager who works with residents to develop goals for moving his/her life in a positive direction
  • Together, the Resident and the Case Manager develop individualized plans for identifying action steps to help move the Resident forward toward his identified goals
  • Residents are not required to participate in any programs or activities as a condition to remain at Partner's Place
  • Benton County Health Department will provide regular consultation to the Case Manager which is particularly important for tenants who have ongoing mental health issues and/or chronic medical conditions

  Men's Cold Weather Shelter
  • The shelter first opened December 2005 out of concern that community members who were homeless would not have a place to get out of the winter weather
  • The Corvallis Homeless Shelter Coalition had only recently formed and through an all-volunteer effort we had located an unused fraternity house that needed much work to even meet fire code
  • Operational costs were covered in part that first year by a $5,000 donation from Corvallis Police Department and local donations which enabled us to hire one full time over-night employee with the rest of the supervision and oversight coming from local faith based organizations and community groups 
  • The second year saw us moving again, only this time to a sorority complete with ornate chandeliers.  Again, our team of volunteers carried out the necessary repairs, and we were able to serve between 25-40 guests each night
  • During our third year of operation we were able to move the shelter to its current location at the Westside Community Church.  There are four shows available for guests and through the assistance of 17 faith based and community organizations we are able to proved warm blankets, clothing and snacks through the shelter
  • We continue to receive financial support from the Corvallis Police Department and this past year we also received grant funding from the City Social Services Fund and United Way
