Emergency Shelter

In Partnership With BC Housing

Emergency Shelter

The Gateway of Hope believes that everyone should be able to have a warm and safe sleep at night. Life on the streets means not knowing where your next meal may come from or how you will find protection from the elements. We work to provide people with life’s basic necessities. Our Emergency Shelter can house up to 22 men and 10 women.
