Men’s Emergency Shelter:
What would you do if you suddenly lost your home? Where would you go? Would your family take you in? For many of the people we serve, the answer to such a question would be “I don’t know” or “No”. No matter what the circumstances, in the end, we all need a safe place to stay, even if only for a night or two.
Having a safe place to stay is important because of the extreme variances in Saskatchewan’s weather conditions; from heat waves to cold snaps – living outside is not an option on most days.
All men wanting to use our emergency shelter are encouraged to come and participate with our Meal Program Monday through Friday. On the weekend we will provide a meal when we open the shelter doors at 4:30 pm. The doors will be locked at 7 pm and all men wanting to use the shelter need to be in the shelter by 7 pm. After the doors are locked, any man who leaves the shelter will not be allowed back in. We have 24 beds and the shelter is operated as a dry shelter and is free to use. We fill the beds on a first come, first served basis.
