More shelter beds opened this week to serve Nanaimo’s street population as the city struggles to deal with a rising homeless population.
Thirty beds are now available at the First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo’s 595 Townsite Rd. property. The City of Nanaimo and B.C. Housing are helping to support the program, which will run until Oct. 31, when cold-weather shelter service traditionally opens up.
