Winter Emergency Response

winter emergency response

Each winter, Homeward Trust, along with its community partners, coordinates a Winter Emergency Response program. The funding provided by Homeward Trust through this program allows several city drop-ins to extend their operating hours—ensuring that homeless individuals are not left outside to face the harsh winter conditions. This program also funds a winter warming bus that provides services to people in need and helps connect them to emergency shelters.

The Winter Emergency Response Handbook includes information about hours of drop-in, food, shelters and resources. Also included is a map of the Homeward Trust Funded Agency locations and the Winter Warming Bus stops.
