Shelter beds continue to fall short of demand in Kamloops, the city’s social and community development supervisor has told council.
Natalie Serl provided an update to council last week on social housing, detailing the shortage of 110 emergency shelter beds.
Thirty beds recently came online this month at the Mustard Seed New Life Community Kamloops — but it’s still not enough. Serl said a shelter action team, consisting of city staff, shelter providers and BC Housing, meets regularly to address short and long-term solutions.
