The Ray of Hope Resource Center for the homeless community has expanded its hours of operation.

The center, at 2536 I St. NE, Auburn, is available from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday to Saturday.

The center provides laundry, showers, phone charging, lunch, work assistance and other services.

For more information, call 253-397-0571 or 253-833-8925.

The center for the homeless, which opened last Saturday and sits adjacent to Valley Cities Mental Health on I Street Northeast, is a partnership with the City of Auburn, Auburn Food Bank and Valley Cities.

The food bank is providing staff, food and resource connections for the day-sheltering operation.

Meanwhile, the food bank is helping to manage the overnight shelter (Sundown Shelter) at the Valley Cities site, 2704 I St. NE, on the side of the brick building. It will operate each day from 8:30 p.m. to 7 a.m.

The shelter has increased its bed availability to 35.

Donations to support these causes can be sent to: the Auburn Food Bank, P.O. Box 464, Auburn, WA 98071 or check out the “donate now” link at theauburnfoodbank.org.
