For the past 9 years we had previously been a 45 bed Extreme Weather Shelter, and in 2018 transitioned to hosting a 50 bed daily shelter providing cots and warm blankets on a first-come-first-serve basis. Another 15 beds are added in extreme weather situations to harbour guests from the elements. 

The shelter is run by dedicated staff and volunteers to ensure guests' safety and security at all times.
