The City of Eugene is contracting with St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County to provide a no-cost day storage pilot service in downtown Eugene. The service will be available to anyone and especially support homeless families and individuals in better accessing services downtown by offering day storage for personal belongings, baggage and items. The service will also help to maintain accessible and welcoming public spaces, including the library and downtown sidewalks, by offering alternative storage options.
A day storage service supports the City’s efforts to address the needs of people in our community who are experiencing homelessness and efforts to make downtown Eugene’s public spaces more safe, welcoming and vibrant. Increasing comfort, safety and social services in the downtown core is a top priority, along with activating downtown public spaces through programming and enhancing these spaces through physical improvements.
- Location: In the lot between the Downtown Eugene Public Library (100 W 10th Ave) and The Kiva Grocery (125 W 11th Ave)
- Dates: Monday, June 11 - September 30, 2018
- Hours: 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. seven days a week. St. Vincent de Paul staff will be on site at all times, minus a lunch break, so people can drop off or pick up their belongings.
While it is uncertain at this time how many will be able to be served through the storage space available, the service will be provided to as many people as possible.
