Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WSN will be utilizing hotel vouchers to support Douglas County residents experiencing homelessness between November 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021. The number of hotel vouchers issued each night is limited by funding and room availability. Priority will be given to Douglas County women and children experiencing homelessness. Applications submitted after 2:00 pm will receive a response the following day.
