If this weekend’s turnout at Gateway of Hope’s first extreme weather response is any indicator of the need — service providers who help the homeless may be in for another busy winter in Langley.

When Gateway of Hope called its first Extreme Weather Response last Thursday, people living on the streets arrived en masse at the Langley homeless shelter.

Tiffany Sawatzky, Salvation Army’s residential services manager, said all 15 extreme weather mats were used and the regular 32 shelter beds and 30 relieft shelter beds were full all weekend long and into Monday night.
