Out of the Cold Shelter Program to Close for the Winter Season on April 15
Apr 13, 2016
The City of Greater Sudbury advises that the Out of the Cold shelter program will close for the season on Friday, April 15. The Out of the Cold Shelter program was successful this winter in providing a safe place to sleep for persons who are homeless and disengaged from regular shelter programs.
The Out of the Cold shelter program, operated by the Salvation Army, provided an additional 30 cots to the existing 64 regular emergency shelter beds that are available for men, women, children and youth within the City of Greater Sudbury. The program provided cots to an average of 30 persons per night with additional persons utilizing the service as a drop-in.
The City recognizes the value of this program and is continuing to work with community partners to look at local options moving forward.
In the meantime all the following regular emergency shelter programs continue to provide service to persons seeking shelter:
• Salvation Army: 146 Larch St.
