The last two homeless people camping on the property at St. John’s Anglican Church found housing and moved out last week, said the church minister — yet it appears people are still living outside this winter in the seclusion of Jackson Park.
The homeless had been allowed to camp there with clergy permission after the Warming Room shelter closed for good July 1. At its summer peak, there were 18 tents on church property.
But the campers have slowly left after they found. Rev. Brad Smith said Wednesday the final two homeless men found a house last week.
Meanwhile he said homelessness is still an issue in Peterborough.
