City councillors are going to give more money to help run all of Peterborough’s emergency shelters for the homeless – and they’ll also offer enough to keep the Warming Room open year-round, at least until 2020.

The plan is to give more money to Brock Mission, Cameron House, Youth Emergency Shelter and the Warming Room.

In 2018, the city will take that $200,000 from a homelessness reserve fund and then budget for it in later years.

The Warming Room will get the largest boost: its funding will go from $85,000 annually to $160,000 (an increase of $75,000).
