Short extension for shelter

Alanna Kelly

Workers are boarding up and demolishing the inside of a building off Sutherland Avenue where a Kelowna shelter is located.

Inn from the Cold, however, will get to stay a few more weeks. The shelter is the only part of the building that will not be boarded up just yet. 

Crews on site were pulling apart the inside of the building on Tuesday, but the top floor, where homeless spend their nights, will remain until the week of Jan. 21.

The shelter, which gives 45 clients a place to sleep, has been relentlessly looking for a new location since September. 

Executive director Jan Schulz said in October they've had no luck finding a new home.

“Despite ongoing searches for a new location, we still have nothing secured,” she says.
