The most recent forecast has the temperature above the minimum required for us to open, so until further notice the extreme weather shelter is closed.
We would like to thank all our staff, volunteers, and guests who have made the Inn from the Cold such a welcoming place these past 6 nights. Last night, we had 13 guests, including two couples and one pregnant woman, who would have been unable to find accommodation anywhere else in Richmond.
Thanks to the great work of our shelter staff, many guests are now aware of resources available in the city, and some are on their way to start to access long term housing and recovery programs.
Please check back often for updates. The shelter operator voice mail and this blog will be updated when we open next.
If you have any questions about the program until the next opening, call the shelter operator at 604-315-5705. If you need shelter for tonight, please dial 2-1-1. If your health or safety is at risk, please do not hesitate to dial 9-1-1.
