Emergency Supplies for Under-Resourced

Woodland Action provides clothing and household items to those in need in our community. We also maintain a supply of personal care and grooming items (such as toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, first aid, and so forth).


We are actively engaged in meeting the needs of the most vulnerable populations in the community and in the larger conversation about the community response to homelessness. We participate in the Woodland Homeless Forum Facebook group and have been designated by Cowlitz County to conduct the annual Point in Time (PIT) count for those experiencing homelessness in our area.

We gladly accept donations for the following to be placed in the emergency inventory:

  • socks

  • gloves

  • boots

  • tents

  • sleeping bags

  • backpacks

  • alternate heating sources – propane, kerosene, candles

  • funds to purchase any items above

Housing Support

Woodland Action, in collaboration with the Housing Opportunities of Southwest Washington and the City of Woodland, provides emergency help to low-income citizens of the city. Through income verification, one-on-one meetings with a Navigator, and an application process, we offer:

  • Short-term rental assistance

  • Emergency support for shelter

  • Emergency overnight shelter

  • First and last months rent and/or security deposit

Funding is based on case by case evaluation, with priority given to victims of abuse or crime residing inside city limits.
