Out of the Cold Program
In November 2018 Project SHARE launched a two year pilot Out of the Cold program, an overnight emergency warming centre available from 7pm-7am at St. Andrew's United Church, 5645 Morrison St Niagara Falls. Twenty beds were available to offer overnight relief from the extreme winter weather. The program's second year ran from November 1, 2019-April 9, 2020. This two year pilot project was funded in part by the Niagara Region, the Branscombe Family Foundation and the City of Niagara Falls.
In March 2020, to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic this program expanded to become a 24/7 shelter providing residents three meals per day and a safe, warm bed.
We thank the community for their support of this program while we worked to keep our most vulnerable neighbours fed, housed and healthy.
