Many communities with significant homeless populations also lack significant shelters to house them. 

But the situation changes when the temperature drops. 

Eugene is home to the Egan Warming Centers, named for a homeless man who froze to death several years ago. 

We hear his story and of the operation of the centers from Charlie Harvey at St. Vincent de Paul in Eugene.
