STRATHMORE OVERNIGHT SHELTER

GIVING THANKS GIVING HOPE

WHAT BETTER WAY TO GIVE THANKS THAN TO OFFER SUPPORT TO THOSE IN OUR COMMUNITY WHO MAY BE STRUGGLING?

We can provide a change of clothes if you need it, a shower, a laundry, a place to sleep, and a meal.  It isn’t just about survival though.

When someone checks in to the shelter, we need to ask some questions. We make sure that they get back on their feet, and help them figure out what it would take to get out of their jam.

Strathmore and Wheatland Country are full of helpful agencies. We connect people to those supporters: medical services, clothing, counselling, employment, housing, addictions treatment, dentistry – even furniture.

We make sure that it happens. It’s called “Housing First,” and it’s a model that works.

WE’RE HERE
TO HELP

 

It seems obvious, but we never overlook it. Sometimes you need a place to sleep for a night or two.

  • Maybe you’ve lost your apartment

  • Maybe there’s a flood

  • Or trouble at home

  • Or your car broke down

If you don’t have money for a hotel room, you’re stuck spending a night in your car, or on the street. A lot of people wind up on someone else’s couch, wearing out their welcome.
