SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- The Egan Warming Center helps create a safe and warm place for people in the community, and one of their beloved staff members who is committed to that mission is stepping down.

Shelley Corteville, the now former director of the Egan Warming Center said she put in 105 a week during the five night activation.

After 8 years of putting in work for the center, Corteville said she is stepping down to allow for change.

"I think a program can't change over time as it needs to if the same person is the director for a lot of years," she said. 

Judy Brown, a 10-year volunteer at the center, said Corteville will be missed.

"I've always felt like we had a that we could talk to friend in the director and I'm going to miss that," Brown said.

Brown said she became fast friends with Cortevile when she joined the center's team.

"Shelley has always been really responsive to the needs of the guests to the needs of the volunteers," she said.

Corteville said her decision to join the center's team was a no-brainer.

"I was hooked," she said. "I mean how could you not be? It's a program of the heart."

She said she hopes whoever takes over her position will stay true to the mission of the center.

"I would just encourage people to continue to do what we've all done and what they've been doing which is serve our guest and Egan Warming Center with heart and their generosity and its selfless generosity," she said.
