The Extreme Weather Shelter was developed to assist the homeless at times of extreme weather. A committee with representation from many of the helping organizations in the Valley has developed an Extreme Weather Response Plan.  In times of extreme weather, an extra 20 shelter beds will be made available in a partnership with The Salvation Army and BC Housing. All clients should be directed to the Pidcock Emergency Shelter.

Programs & Services

The following conditions need to be present for Extreme Weather Shelter activation:

1.   Temperatures near zero with rainfall that makes it difficult or impossible for homeless people to remain dry and/or

2.   Sleet or freezing rain and/or

3.   Snow accumulation and/or

4.   Sustained high winds

5.   Temperatures at or below -2 Celsius

6.   Feedback from clientele of the various facilities may also be considered


All the above will be taken into consideration to determine whether the weather poses a substantial threat to the life or health of the homeless.  Contact needs to be made with The Salvation Army emergency Shelter to determine its capacity status by calling 250-338-2533.
