Sudbury to review housing and homelessness plan
The City of Greater Sudbury will be reviewing its 10-year housing and homelessness plan at a Community Services Committee meeting on Monday, March 18.
In 2013, the City created the plan, which identifies six priority areas including supporting individuals with multiple barriers in obtaining and maintaining their housing.
Last week, the Salvation Army announced it is closing Sudbury’s only year-round men’s shelter in May.
The group says it can no longer afford to run the New Life Centre, a 20 bed shelter. It will continue to run its shelter that serves women, parents and children.
Currently, the Canadian Mental Health Association Sudbury-Manitoulin operates the Off the Street Shelter, which is the city’s only low-barrier shelter. It’s a seasonal program operating from November 1 to April 15.
Right now, there a total of five emergency shelters operating in the city.
