Cold-weather shelter beds

As the nights in the B.C. Interior continue to get colder, the province is opening 30 new short-term shelter beds in Kamloops next month.

The Canadian Mental Health Association will be operating the shelter at 185 Royal Avenue, providing residents with 24/7 support, with the hopes of helping them transition to more permanent housing.

Supports on site include life-skills training, employment assistance, support groups and referrals to other community services.

The province is calling these short-term beds an “interim measure” until permanent supportive housing is opened next spring at 317 Tranquille Road and 259 Victoria St. West.

Additionally, 55 temporary supportive homes are under construction on Mission Flats Road.

The most recent homeless count in Kamloops found that 201 people were experiencing homeless in Kamloops.
