With a stretch of cold, snowy weather bearing down on Toronto, Scarborough’s recently opened winter homeless shelter may have little room to accommodate any more guests.
A month after The Scarborough Winter Respite Centre became the region’s first ever winter shelter, organizers say the facility has been full nearly every night.
“It hasn’t even gotten that cold yet,” said Ginelle Skerritt, Executive Director of the Warden Woods Community Centre on Metro Morning. “It is surprising that we are at capacity most nights now.”
