Information for potential Members:

The Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter of Davis began as a dream amongst a small group of Davis residents. At the time the IRWS was being considered, there were only two emergency shelter beds available to meet the needs of approximately 120 individuals living homeless in Davis. The IRWS planning group began to meet in the fall of 2005, and just two years later the IRWS opened for its first season, offering up to 25 shelter beds to anyone in need.

In its first year of operation, the IRWS had only 9 congregations and community groups involved. Over the next 7 years, the IRWS has grown to include over 50 groups and 2,000+ volunteers. Thanks to the support of the community and our individual volunteers and members, the IRWS is able offer shelter to anyone in need in the Davis community!
