Extreme Weather Response

EWR makes safe spaces available when the weather is severe enough to pose a higher health risk to people who experience homelessness. It operates during times of extreme heat or cold. These collaborative initiatives bring the wider community together to reduce the harm to the most vulnerable. Our cold weather service provider is Lookout Housing and Health Society.

Our Success Stories

  • “Well, what it’s done for me is build a bridge to normalcy so I could see, engage, and experience dealing with healthy people - the environment is totally different. When you leave that kind of world it’s really scary, because now you’re now dealing with people in an environment you’re not completely familiar with. One of our main objectives of staying sober and clean and being well is helping others - it’s made a huge difference in our program.”
    Burnaby Community Action Team
  • “Doing service for those in need at the Outreach Centre keeps me sober.”
