The City of Campbell River is working with BC Housing to help ensure people who are homeless in our community have a safe place to sleep.
With the extreme weather shelter due to close for the season, and a sobering assessment centre proposed, but opening date uncertain, Mayor Andy Adams placed a call to BC Housing to ask if they could help temporarily fill the gap in services.
“BC Housing has confirmed they will consider a request to keep the extreme weather shelter open at its current location at its regular hours,” says Mayor Adams. “Council is extremely grateful and appreciative of the ongoing support from BC Housing for our community, and we are looking forward to working collaboratively to find solutions.”
In the meantime, Campbell River Family Services has confirmed it will keep the extreme weather shelter open until at least April 4.
