Hello Dear Community,

In 2020 in order to preserve the health of our most vulnerable in the community we changed our service model. Right now the EWRRC is happy to offer some in building services. 

Appointments for in building services began October 12th, 2020. And while we are not currently open for walk in services, we offer 30 minute appointments for:

  • computers inside as well as laptops to borrow and use inside or outside,
  • indoor phone,
  • exchange table,
  • Meetings with staff for specialized intake support such as with Medicare or SNAP benefits.

Virtual or phone appointments are also available. Please call 599-3944 to make your appointment.

To keep our community as safe and healthy as possible, all visitors must wear a mask over mouth and nose unless we have a signed vaccination attestation and each appointment is for one single adult. Other conditions may apply; call us to learn more or to get on the schedule.

Please note: grab and go services continue to be available with a courtesy phone available outside Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays 9AM-4PM. Unfortunately we are unable to accept donations at this time. Click here to see our new services poster.

Call 360-599-3944 to speak with a staff or leave a message to request these services.
