High costs of homelessness

Homelessness is a problem for those who experience it first hand, and the communities who try to support the homeless.

Homelessness in the winter is likely even more of a challenge.

According to a CBC article, this will be the last winter 27 beds will be available at the Salvation Army Centre of Hope.  The Center will be closing in April due to funding shortfalls.

The article indicates that the clients of the homeless shelter will need to work with other community groups.

Hopefully a efficient solution is found so that the Province and the Salvation Army can keep meeting the needs of our homeless community.
