Shelters in Windsor are reporting growing numbers of people in need and some of those people are from the county.

There are no shelter facilities anywhere in the county, but Hiatus House is working on that. Earlier this year, it bought land in Leamington, but it still needs approvals and funding to complete the project.

“We currently see anywhere 20 to 25 per cent of the women we see are from the county. We know there’s a greater need for that,” said Thom Rolfe, executive director of Hiatus House.
