Overnight shelter at the Gathering Place

The Gathering Place takes part in the Greater Vancouver Shelter Strategy.

When there is an extreme weather alert, we open our doors at 12:00 midnight for people to sleep indoors. We lay out blankets and mats in our theatre space and provide a snack at night and breakfast in the morning.

BC Housing reimburses the Gathering Place for our participation in the extreme weather response strategy.
