Homelessness is not just a city problem. Rural homelessness is a hidden issue affecting many in our region. A car, a dumpster, the underside of a bridge, or just a tent in the woods, all have served as viable options in the past for those in our community without a home.
Today, through the generosity of many, there is a place for those who find themselves in need. With an on-call volunteer team, and room for up to 6 individuals, the overnight shelter provides an opportunity to get cleaned up and get a good nights rest.
The shelter is open and available from November 1 to March 31. For more information about the shelter, please drop in to the Food Security program and speak with one of our volunteers or staff.
The shelter is in the basement of the food security program which allows for easy access to a home cooked meal and services that can connect individuals back to housing. If you are interested in helping by volunteering or donating to support, please call 519-765-2444 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
