A new temporary men’s shelter is expected to open in Sudbury by the middle of next month.

The shelter, located at at 517 Kathleen St., will help fill the gap created when the Salvation Army closed its New Life Centre in downtown Sudbury earlier this month.

The Canadian Mental Health Association – Sudbury/Manitoulin and the City of Greater Sudbury are working together to open the facility, which is for “individuals who identify as male and individuals who identify without a gender (non-binary) and feel comfortable in a men’s shelter.”
