We Provide Shelter 

Our Drop-In centres are open to everyone and offer particular support to individuals who are living with mental health challenges, homeless, under-housed, or precariously housed and at risk of becoming homeless.

We use a low-barrier philosophy making services accessible to vulnerable clients who may otherwise be turned away by traditional service providers.

The centres are open when individuals are starting to leave shelters/hostels for the day. Our schedule coordinates with other drop-in centers located in the vicinity.
