Low-barrier Winter Emergency Shelter:

Each year, Shelter House opens a low-barrier Winter Emergency Shelter at a temporary satellite location in order to provide a warm place to stay for anyone experiencing homelessness during the coldest months of the year, despite barriers they may have such as substance abuse.

This year, 151 individuals were served through the low-barrier Winter Emergency Shelter, providing thousands of nights of shelter from the life-threatening cold.
