The winter is hard for people who are homeless or precariously sheltered.
In order to make sure that people have a place to sleep during extreme cold weather, End Homelessness Winnipeg and a number of front-line organizations have developed a map of emergency overnight drop-in shelters. If you, someone you know, or someone you meet, need a place to sleep on a cold night, this map will show you the options that are available once the temperature reaches a certain point. A City Wide Alert is issued at -15 C or -25 wind chill and Augustine United Church, also known as 1JustCity Just a Warm Sleep, operates at -10C. 1justCity city will open on January 21, 2018.
Additionally, some of these shelters may need volunteers – please consult their individual websites or call their main line. 1JustCity Just a Warm Sleep is actively recruiting volunteers.
For individual services, see the website links below or visit the 211 Manitoba home page and select the “Housing and Homelessness” tile.
