Housing insecurity is the lack of security in an individual shelter that is the result of high housing costs relative to income, poor housing quality, unstable neighbourhoods, overcrowding, and/or homelessness.
Out of the Cold - Emergency Winter Shelter is a community-based, volunteer-run organization that works to provide shelter & community supports to people who are homeless and precariously housed. They have existed since 2008.
OTCS provides a safe and welcoming environment for everyone, ages 16 and up. The organization is staffed by volunteers, paid staff, and volunteer organizers with the support of several community agencies.
This organization is a community-based response to homelessness in our city. They are seeking dedicated volunteers to help staff the shelter and community drop-in. All volunteers will receive training.
