Ladysmith Shelter designation could be changing
The extreme weather shelter in Ladysmith is ready to go for another season.
Ladysmith Resources Centre Association board president Marsh Stevens said they’ve got some new flooring in the shelter and new metal beds and mattresses.
Stevens said BC Housing has applied to make the shift from an extreme weather shelter to a cold weather shelter.
“That would mean we would be open predictably every night. It wouldn’t be a judgment call.”
The shelter can house 15 people in a co-ed facility.
On extreme weather nights, it’s open at 5 when a hot meal is served along with breakfast in the morning.
