Provincially funded extreme-weather shelters will soon begin to open across B.C., including more than two dozen beds in Kamloops.
“During the colder months, it’s important that people experiencing homelessness in our province know that there is a place they can go to get warm and find supports and services that can help them stabilize their lives,” said Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing.
“As we continue the work of building permanent housing, we’re proud to work in partner with commits and non-profit housing providers to provide these shelter spaces.”
This winter season, the province plans to open almost 1,355 temporary shelter spaces and more than 820 extreme-weather response shelter spaces.
In Kamloops, The Mustard Seed has 25 provincially funded extreme-weather shelter beds.
