Extreme Cold Weather ResourcesNovember 3, 2023
The winter is hard for people who are experiencing homelessness or precariously sheltered. If you are looking for warm weather shelters in Manitoba, please call 2-1-1 for the most current situation. We will continually update this blog as we are informed of changes in programming or are notified of additional resources.
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 released Emergency Response: A Homeless-centred Plan for Keeping Winnipeggers Safer.
