Carol’s Place, a 24-hour drop-in centre for Peterborough’s homeless population formerly located inside Peterborough Square, is now closed.

Two weeks before Christmas, the mall’s management notified the shelter that it would have to vacate its former location within the mall.

“We learned in October that we weren’t going to be allowed to stay in the office that we were in but we were promised a smaller office in the mall, and that offer now, 10 days before Christmas, was taken off the table,” said Carol’s Place executive director Dan Hennessey.
