Fred Victor Support Worker Kelly Foss at the door of the new, 100-bed City-funded shelter in the Exhibition Grounds being interviewed by CBC News.With Fred Victor's close to 125-year history of working year-round with people experiencing poverty and homelessness, our organization is well-placed to run the 24-hour, winter respite service. A lot of long days went into getting it up and running on time. Good work, TEAM! Read more.
The Shelter serves men, women, couples and people with pets. Fred Victor coordinates intake and beds, and provides three hot meals a day plus snacks, clothing, crisis intervention, referrals, nursing and harm reduction services and Fred Victor housing support staff on site.
To access the shelter, please call 136 Peter Street or 311 or our Fred Victor hotline at 647-327-4215. Please encourage people who need shelter to go directly to the site. We accept walk-ins and drop-offs. No one will be turned away. If we do not have a bed available, we will find one.
At this time, we need assistance with warm clothing, coats, boots, new underwear, toiletries and hygiene products. If you wish to donate these or know people who are able to, please contact the staff at the Winter Respite Shelter.
Fred Victor will be running this shelter until the end of April 2018.
