Between December 17, 2021 and March 31, 2022 the City supported Richmond’s first warming centre, located at the South Arm Outdoor Pool building, operated by The Salvation Army. The warming centre provided basic accommodation and ensured people experiencing homelessness could access a warm space to rest, sleep and stay warm during periods of extreme cold. Participants were provided warm drinks, snacks and meals and mats and chairs to sleep or rest. Planning for winter shelter services for the 2022/2023 winter season is in progress; check back for more information.
