The Drop In Centre’s shelter programs provide homeless individuals with a shelter bed and access to basic needs, such as meals, hygiene items, and showers. These emergency shelters offer individuals a safe place to stay as they search for housing and pursue their goals.
All shelter residents are encouraged to utilize The Drop In Centre during the day, when the shelter is closed. Meals are provided twice daily at the Drop In Centre and are free of charge to anyone utilizing the shelter program. The Drop In Centre is open to anyone needing a helping hand.
Housing Stability Support Workers are available to assist residents with building an individualized plan that best suits their needs and helps them work towards current goals. These workers can also connect residents with additional services and support resources for mental and physical health, substance abuse, trauma counselling, and legal aid.
Note: If you identify as transgender, we can work together to place you in a shelter where you feel most comfortable.
