Cold Weather Shelter
The Ladysmith Shelter is open from 6 p.m. until 7 a.m. from Nov 1st through March 31. Find shelter at 631 First Avenue, the entrance is located at the blue door in the rear parking lot.
Funded through BC Housing, the program runs from November 1st through March 31st each year.
A hot evening meal, access to a clean bed, sundries and a shower, laundry and the warm company of the staff and volunteers of Ladysmith Extreme Weather Shelter are essential services for our community. The Ladysmith Resources Centre operates Ladysmith’s low barrier cold weather shelter available to adults needing short-term housing. We offer 5-10 beds available on a nightly basis.
Our professional staff members operate the shelter and provide assistance and companionship. Shelter staff are also happy to make referrals to other agencies if the guest so desires this help.
It is a safe environment off the streets where individuals can expect to be treated with inclusivity, fairness and respect.
