Extreme Cold Weather Response – Community Supports

With the start of the cold weather, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration would like to remind you that additional services for people who are homeless are triggered when an Extreme Cold Weather Alert is issued by Toronto Public Health.

New this year are two 24-hour drop-ins which will be opened by 3 pm the day an alert is called: Margaret’s Toronto East Drop-In at 323 Dundas Street East and St. Felix Centre at 25 Augusta Avenue. Services include warm food and drinks and referrals to shelter. Both services are pet-friendly.

More information on these drop-ins and additional services available during Extreme Cold Weather Alerts for people experiencing homelessness is available at http://bit.ly/18ofC7N 24 hr dropin Cold alert poster-page-001
