Housing & Shelter
The City of Hamilton is seeking support from Homelessness Serving Agencies, registered Faith Groups, and others who may be interested in operating temporary overnight drop-in space on evenings when a Cold Weather Alert is activated.
The temporary Cold Alert spaces will bolster the City’s response to address the needs of people experiencing homelessness. The temporary service is requested for the current Winter season, from December 2022 to March 2023.
Service would include, but not limited to:
- Overnight warming space for individuals;
- Light snacks/refreshments;
- Referral to ongoing services/supports.
We invite interested agencies to complete the required business case:
