Coverdale Emergency Homeless Shelter for Women


The Emergency Shelter is a home setting and includes three bedrooms with 10 beds.  During their stay clients will work with the Shelter Director to design a case plan that is specific to their needs and will be connected with resources to determine their eligibility for public assistance and housing programs.  Length of stay will be determined by the Shelter Director. Shelter staff will support clients every step of the way and this support will continue while clients make the transition to independent living. 


Although we encourage a clean and sober lifestyle the shelter understands that clients may not be at a place in their lives where this is happening. For this reason we provide a "wet room". This is a bedroom that provides a safe resting place for women who may be under the influence.  If clients choose, staff can  provide the appropriate resources to help them on their path of recovery.



Monday to Saturday  - 4:00PM to 8:00AM

Sunday - All Day

Although the shelter is closed Monday to Friday 8am-4pm clients are encouraged to go to the drop in centre on Waterloo Street.
