Emergency Shelter Info During Extreme Weather Conditions
The Greather Victoria Emergency Weather Protocol helps provide shelter for homeless people during periods of harsh wind, rain, snow, and/or subzero temperatures. When extreme weather conditions are predicted and year-round shelter beds are full, participating organizations implement the Extreme Weather Protocol by opening up additional shelters and moving to overflow beds.
For up-to-date info on emergency shelter locations visit their website here: http://vewp.net/
Info can also be found at the Coalition to End Homelessness website
