What if the weather is bad on the day of our appointment?
As a general rule, Liberty House will remain open during bad weather. In very severe weather (for example freezing rain or ice storms) the Chief Executive Officer may decide to close Liberty House. That decision will be made by 6:30 AM at which time the voicemail message on the main telephone number (503-540-0288) will be changed to alert callers that Liberty House will be closed. If the weather is bad the morning of your appointment, please call the main telephone number (503-540-0288) after 6:30 AM to see whether Liberty House will be closed. If Liberty House is closed, the Intake Coordinator will call you when Liberty House reopens to reschedule your appointment. If Liberty House is open but you feel that it is unsafe for you to travel, please call the main telephone number (503-540-0288) at 8 AM. The Intake Coordinator will reschedule your appointment.
Do children live at Liberty House?
