There has been a steady rise in street homelessness in Fredericton and across the province. A growing number of people are at risk of injury, or worse, due to the dropping temperatures; as such, communities have been working to develop short-term solutions to address this crisis.

Through the collective efforts of a number of agencies and individuals, Fredericton’s Out of the Cold will open its door on Thursday night (November 29) to upwards of 20 individuals. The OOTC will be open nightly from 8:00 pm to 7:30 am for the next 20 weeks.
