Mission Community Services Society Extreme Weather Response Shelter provides temporary accommodation to those who are homeless when severe weather conditions make sleeping outdoors a risk to health and safety.  The shelter on Logan Avenue is put into service when the community’s Extreme Weather Response plan sparks notification to a number of agencies, in particular when outdoor temperatures fall below freezing level (0 degrees).

“We put out mats in the upstairs open room and a meal is supplied to all who require the service,” said coordinator Ed Cassia.

The program runs between Nov. 1 and March 31.
