We are pleased to share that Public Health declared the COVID-19 outbreak at our Men’s Shelter is over.

Unfortunately, on March 14, 2021 Public Health declared an outbreak of COVID-19 at our East Hamilton shelter overflow location, consisting of one positive staff person.

Public Health and the Shelter Health Network have visited the Men’s Shelter and our East Hamilton location throughout the pandemic and have indicated that we are following all of their recommendations and guidelines regarding safe practices and protocols.

It is our hope that these practices will prevent a wider spread. Thank you to the Shelter Health Network for their swift and compassionate care in keeping our clients and staff as safe as possible.

The dedicated staff at the Men’s Shelter and the overflow shelter remain committed to their work while practicing health and safety recommendations during the pandemic.

To support our COVID-19 measures, including providing adequate PPE, consider contributing to our COVID-19 Fund.
