Emergency Shelter (Year-round 24-hour)

For people who are homeless, we provide a bed in a dorm room, three meals per day and access to showers and laundry.  

Priority is given to residents of Salt Spring and the Southern Gulf Islands.

The service is low barrier, however basic rules of conduct have to be followed.

We are not able to shelter minors and it is not wheelchair accessible.

We can house approximately 25 people per night, however for Extreme Weather Events between November 1st and March 31st, we have the ability to add another 10 beds.

Shelter staff helps people identify other housing options and connect them with support services.

Funded by BC Housing.
