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.
We're committed to ensuring all residents have a safe place to come inside, particularly during cold and extreme weather.
