Elgin Street Mission to Provide Interim Overnight Services

The City of Greater Sudbury has partnered with the Board of Directors for the Elgin Street Mission to extend the Mission’s operating hours until the Out Of the Cold Shelter is open. With the extension of service by the Mission, individuals requiring warmth from out of the cold will be accommodated.

Effective tonight (Monday, November 24, 2014), the Mission will be open from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., 7 days a week. 

Building modifications are underway at the chosen site of the Out of the Cold program, at 200 Larch Street. The Salvation Army is also organizing their supports to get the program up and running as quickly as possible. The City will advise the public on the opening date of the program, once a final start date has been confirmed.

The City continues to work with community partners to coordinate and enhance programs for vulnerable persons in the community.
