The Unitarian Shelter is the grateful recipient of a recent
$5,000 donation from the ‘Compassion in Action Transferable Fund
held by the Vancouver Foundation.

For the past nine years, men and women have found overnight respite from the streets, a hot meal, clean clothes and a non-judgemental welcome at the
Nanaimo Unitarian Shelter at 595 Townsite Road, Nanaimo, BC.

Open seven nights a week from 6pm to 7am November through March, the shelter is funded through the federal, provincial and municipal governments, and by generous cash and in kind donations from members of the First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo and individuals, businesses and organizations in our community – and beyond.
