📢 The EWR has been stood down and emergency sheltering spaces are CLOSED. Thank you to all our volunteers for your help! 📢

Welcome to our Help Portal

We can help!

You’ve come to the right place. We are here to provide a welcoming, non-judgemental place where guests can access a hot meal, groceries, hot showers, hygiene supplies, clothing, pet food, harm reduction supplies and other essential services as well as the opportunity to meet with Outreach Workers.

Please refer to the calendar below to see our schedule of current services we offer.
Looking for shelter?

We respond to both extreme cold and extreme heat warnings. The Extreme Weather Response shelters are open whenever the temperature drops below 0 degrees (or feels like 0 degrees) during the night OR whenever the temperature is anticipated to reach a daytime high of 29 degrees Celsius for two or more consecutive days.

If you are in need of a place to shelter from extreme weather, please check our current schedule for temporary shelter openings below.
