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 an Extreme Cold Weather Response plan. An up-to-date list of overnight warming shelters/centres, outreach vans and foot patrols in Winnipeg can be found here. If you, someone you know, or someone you meet, needs a place to sleep on a cold night, this map will show you the options that are available.
The Winnipeg Outreach Network has created a physical pamphlet of resources to help street-involved youth and adults find resources without requiring internet access. You can print your own copy or obtain a copy through the Winnipeg Outreach Network. It can be easily folded and carried in a jacket pocket.
We will continually update this blog as we are informed of changes in programming or are notified of additional resources. For up-to-date information, please revisit this page.
For individual services, see the website links below or visit the 211 Manitoba home page and select the “Housing and Homelessness” tile.
