Greater Sudbury is will be working with community groups to find ways to accommodate homeless men in the city after news that the New Life Centre shelter will close May 10.
The Salvation Army announced it was closing the downtown shelter this week, which has 22 beds for men. There are 94 beds at four shelters in the city for people with no other place to go, with some aimed at women and families in distress.
“This decision has been an incredibly difficult one for the Salvation Army,” said Major Bruce Shirran, executive director of the group in Sudbury, in a press release.
