In response to the below-freezing temperatures forecast, the City of Campbell River and the Campbell River Coalition to End Homelessness are activating a warming centre at the Community Centre from 10 p.m. on the evening of December 8 to 7 a.m. on December 9, 2022.
The warming centre will be staffed with individuals who have experience working with people experiencing homelessness to ensure support is available to those attending the centre. Funding for the centre is provided by the City of Campbell River.
It is expected that a warming centre will not open on the evenings of December 9 and 10, 2022. The City is monitoring the forecast and will advise the public of any warming centre activations ahead of opening.
Thank you to the Coalition to End Homelessness and the many staff and volunteers who make warming centre activations possible.
